Stopover in Hollywood (1963)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent, if somewhat strange, documentary short about a blonde who goes to Hollywood to see some famous sites. With the narration we visit Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the famous Walk of Fame, a funeral with many famous people buried and also the houses of a few still with us. There have been countless films that showed off various sites in Hollywood and we've seen these throughout the silent era and forward. This one here has a lot of great images but at the same time you feel as if you're a stalker. Filmmaker Will Williams takes his camera and shows us several celebrity homes including that of James Stewart. There's certainly nothing overly wrong with this as the world was a different time back in the day but at the same time you feel a little uneasy about this. Williams also appears to be a big fan of Gary Cooper as we see his mark on the Walk of Fame, his burial ground and his former home. Also on hand is the site where Cecil B. DeMille's 1914 film THE SQUAW MAN was filmed with a statue calling it the first American feature.
