Fun Spoof of the Casting Couch
29 April 2019 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Tinseltown (1980)

*** (out of 4)

Carter Stevens wrote, produced and directed this spoof of Hollywood. We're introduced to three different ladies who show up in Hollywood expecting to make it big but it doesn't take long for them to be passed around from one producer to the next.

In the commentary track for the film, director Stevens talks about how he was wanting to get out of the porno business and try his hand at a legit film. He agreed to make this picture as long as he was allowed to go to California and the rest is pretty much history. While his career didn't lead to anything "mainstream" he at least got to deliver a rather clever and fun film.

TINSELTOWN isn't a masterpiece but there's no question that Stevens had a talent for getting his cast in the mood of what he was trying to do. We've seen this type of story countless times before but I really liked the comic tone that was on display here and for the most part the film was well-made and fun. It certainly helped that Danille Raye was so good in her role as a country girl seeking fame.
