This film starts out in a fairly routine fashion.Film director Henry Wilcoxon has lost his career due to drink and his creditors are selling his effects to pay his debts.Along comes Shirley Temple substitute Jane Withers to try and rescue him.Most of the first half of the film takes place in an actors boarding house.Then around half way through it switches to a film studio where one of the actors has secured a test.We are then treated to a tour of parts of the Fox studios and a good insight into film making in the 1930s.The plot which is par for the course rather takes secondondary interest to the process of film making.You even see the production manager completing a production record showing what happened on each take,it is that detailed.The funny thing is that when films about film making are mentioned this is not referred to.So if you get the opportunity to see this or to buy it i would recommend that you do.
