This film's producer, Martin A. Gosch, was not an MGM in-house producer, as most producers were on MGM films. He was the producer for Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's radio show, and they insisted that he produce this film rather than a studio producer they believed would be looking out for the studio's interests rather than theirs.

ABBOTT AND COSTELLO IN HOLLYWOOD (1945) **1/2 Pretty funny send-up of poking fun at Tinsel Town with the boys running amok on a studio's backlot (MGM) and causing the usual problems/laughs.
