Trivia

Katherine Heigl's character was Katharine Hepburn's stand-in. Permission was not granted to use Hepburn's name, so references to Rita Hayworth were dubbed in post-production. See more »

Goofs

Rita Hayworth was not a star in 1937. It's unlikely she had a stand-in at that time. See more »

Original, and great performances!
26 January 2005 | by AeCoolSee all my reviews

I found this movie very well. The story is original, and becomes very intense. Sammi Davis and Daphne Zuniga made a very great performance. And Harvey Keith has well succeeds in putting to us in the environment of the 30s.

Daphne Zuniga as Shirley, (Greta Garbo stand-in) Sammi Davis as Jean Harlow stand-in Katherine Heigl as Taffy, (Rita Heyworth stand-in) Charlotte Chatton as Peg, (Mae West stand-in) Jordan Ladd as Monica, (Bette Davis stand-in) with also Missy Crider and Costas Mandylor.

I love this movie! Intense!

Great performance! ****
