Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Innocent young hopeful Rosina Lawrence arrives in Hollywood hoping for stardom and, after some disillusion, gets a screen test thanks to Jack Haley. This thoroughly feeble movie was misleadingly presented as a Laurel and Hardy comedy - they appear in only a couple of brief sequences that make for the brightest spots. Other minor highlights are provided by wisecracking Patsy Kelly and Mischa Auer, as an egomaniacal star. Don't stay in for this one.
