Storyline

This short subject features Richard Arlen as host as well as "The Great Arlen," a magician. The Great Arlen attempts to conjure up the King of Hearts, but initially only comes up with a fake who reveals himself as Cantdu the Magician. The Great Arlen ties up Cantdu and conjures up the "real" King of Hearts, Clark Gable. Then he makes actress Frances Dee appear, followed by Tallulah Bankhead, who sings a song. Finally "Admiral" Buster Keaton and his "second in command" Lew Cody show up aboard Keaton's land cruiser. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Hollywood on Parade No. A-6 (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mildly amusing entry in the popular series has Richard Arlen playing himself who turns into a magician and performs a few tricks, which of course brings us some famous stars. Both Clark Gable and Tallulah Bankhead are shown via archival footage but Buster Keaton and Lew Cody appear in one small skit together. Obviously if you're looking for some sort of story then you're not going to find it in this series because the main goal here was to simply show off some famous faces. For the most part this is entertaining but the archival footage keeps it from being better.
