Ruthless young actor will stop at nothing for that Oscar nomination, 20 October 2005
I also love this movie. I first saw it about 12-15 years ago on a
short-lived series on TNT called "Bad movies we love" or something like
that. For many years I traditionally watched it right before the Oscar
broadcast. The "Airplane" of bad movies, the hilarious dialogue just
keeps coming. I taped it from a pay TV source many years ago, but would
also buy a pristine VHS or DVD copy. Jill St. John's finest hour.
Struggling young actor,impatient for stardom, steps on everyone he
meets on his way to an Oscar nomination. Terrible overacting by nearly
everyone involved, and ridiculous,riotous dialogue make this a classic
guilty pleasure. Made at a time when Hollywood was not yet consciously
making "bad" movies. Great fun.
