Storyline

In this short subject, performer Cliff Edwards introduces musical numbers and archival footage of various Hollywood stars, connecting them loosely with a "tribute" to theme songs -- none of which actually are theme songs. Clarence Muse performs a song of his own composition, and a mariachi band plays a musical tribute to Lupe Velez. Other footage shows the stars visiting the Caliente racetrack in Mexico.

Hollywood on Parade No. A-12 (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Cliff Edwards plays host in this episode, which once again takes a lot of archival footage to round out the running time. We do start off with Clarence Muse doing a song and then we get a brief scene of Warren William congratulating him on it. From here we go to the stock footage, which is basically a bunch of footage of celebrities out at public events or just playing around. We get a shot of Carole Lombard and William Powell as well as shots of Wheeler and Woolsey, Constance Bennett, Gary Cooper, Joan Bennett and others. Lupe Valez also appears in clips from some of her films while a band plays a song to her. Once again if you're a fan of the series then you'll certainly want to check this episode out as there are a great number of celebrities on display. It's certainly fun seeing the legends off doing their own thing but the stuff with Muse and William were certainly the highlights.
