A tour of the MGM lab shows how technicians process movie film and behind-the-scenes glimpses of currently shooting MGM productions: "Marie Antoinette," "Judge Hardy's Children," "Test Pilot," and "Toy Wife" are shown. Film from the Oscar ceremony showing MGM contractees Luise Ranier and Spencer Tracy receiving Oscars is also featured. Of great interest to film buffs are references to films that would not be made for over a decade, albeit with a different cast, including Freddy Bartholomew in "Kim" and Fernand Gravey in "Scaramouche."

Another Romance of Celluloid (1938)

*** (out of 4)

MGM short is pretty interesting as the first part discusses how the celluloid gets to the studio and eventually how the film goes to the lab. The second part of the film is pretty much a promo for MGM as we get to see some footage from upcoming movies as well as some behind the scenes stuff from Marie Antoinette. Film buffs will also get a kick out of the 1937 Oscar ceremony where Frank Capra announces Spencer Tracy is too ill to be there to get his award so it's handed to Louie B. Mayer who then gives it to Tracy's wife. It's worth noting that a few of the films mentioned as "coming soon" ended up not being released for over a decade and a few of the films are announced with certain cast members but the final movies feature someone else.
