Autograph Seeker


The horses and jockeys usually at Santa Anita Park have given way this day to an air show. A cavalcade of movie stars are there, flying planes, being passengers in planes, taking an active role in the event proceedings or watching the event along with the throngs of movie and airplane fans. Among the fans are two women, whose main goal is to get as many autographs of their favorite movie stars as possible. In their quest, they get into one predicament after another, including being implicated in the mysterious disappearance of a bracelet belonging to actress Ruth Hussey. They also get a little closer to the actual air show than they were originally intending. Written by Huggo

Soaring Stars (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Cheap "show off our stars" short from Warner has a pair of autograph hunters (Sally Payne, Mary Treen) at a race track where various Hollywood stars are watching an aviation contest. The two are there to get some signatures but accidentally find themselves caught up in a bracelet that was stolen from Ruth Hussey. There's really not too much "story" going on here as the main reason to see the film is due to the stars that make brief (sometimes just seconds) cameos. Edmund Lowe, Irene Hervey, Bonita Granville, Jackie Cooper, Joe E. Brown, John Carroll, Freddie Bartholomew and Richard Arlen are among the famous faces showing up. If you're a fan of any of these you might want to give this a spin but I doubt others will get too much entertainment out of this thing.
