Breakfast in Hollywood is a most wonderful little movie. One of many made during 1940's as just an appetizer for the main feature. Well, they don't make B movies anymore. But today most A movies would struggle to reach the heights this little movie reaches. Considering it was made as just a programmer at the time it has so much charm and class, combining as it does music, comedy, drama and romance.
The cast is stellar featuring as it does a number of famous faces from the period. And they are all in great form. And it all takes place in a single day. The atmosphere is dreamy in gorgeous black and white. Of cause it's underrated. And it's forgotten because at the time it wasn't made to be remembered above the main feature.
But for all that it was made to entertain. And 67 years after the fact, it stands out on its own as a little jewel of its time. Bonita Granville is just perfect as the quintessential young love-struck 1940's girl. But the rest of the cast are no less wonderful. I found this movie on the net. And it comes highly recommended by me.
