A look at the dark side of Hollywood, aimed at the fan magazine reader. O'Brien is a Hollywood columnist exposing the horrors of Tinseltown--directors using starlets for their own lecherous purposes and mobsters controlling what goes on in the picture business. Prival does a bad

impersonation of an arrogant foreign director reminiscent of von Stroheim; Stengel, Prival's neglected wife, commits suicide, leaving a note that blames Tobin, who has been bedding Prival to further her career. Tobin, at the film's beginning, is about to take poison in the lobby of Grauman's

Chinese Theater because of her failed Hollywood career. However, O'Brien stops her and pushes her into stardom and, unwittingly, the scandal with Prival-Stengel, which is exposed by gangsters. O'Brien again comes to the rescue, marrying Tobin for a smiling finish. Naive in its view of the industry

and the audience watching the film.

Coming Soon
