A prisoner with a good singing voice escapes, only to grow jealous when an opera singer who looks like him is delivered back to the prison and receives attention, especially from Ann, the warden's daughter who leads the prison glee club.
This short promotes the premise that movies often create a demand for the fashions seen in them. It starts with a vignette in rural America. A mother and daughter go to town to buy a new dress. In the dress shop window is a designer dress worn by Joan Crawford in a recent movie. We then go to Hollywood and visit Adrian, MGM's chief of costume design, and see how multiple copies of a single clothing pattern are produced. The film ends with short segments of several MGM features.Written by

More Stars Than There Are In Heaven Wearing More Clothes
Here's one of MGM's previews of their forthcoming films. It casts it as Hollywood's influence on style by "annihilating space."
Yikes! Joan Crawford sets the styles for small towns, Robert Taylor's uniforms look better, and the wardrobes of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE will cost $75,000, thanks to the work of Adrian. Then, of course, we get clips from forthcoming movies. It's noteworthy that the MGM production of THE YEARLING is announced for the forthcoming season; various factors would delay it and result in extensive recasting, with Spencer Tracy being replaced by Gregory Peck, Ann Revere with Jane Wyman, and Gene Eckman by Claude Jarman Jr. Even the directors switched, from Victor Fleming to King Vidor, to, ultimately, the ever-dependable Clarence Brown. All of whom, no doubt, looked fabulous.
