REVIEW: Playing himself the incomparable Bob Hope reigns as top comic banana over one of the most star-studded casts ever assembled. Joining him are Bing Crosby, Gary Cooper, Alan Ladd, Barbara Stanwyck and many many more in a comedy classic set amid the reality of a Hollywood studio in the 1940s.
Starlet wannabe, Amber LaVonne is mistaken for a friend, the beautiful and talented Catherine Brown. While the zany Amber flubs her way from audition to screen test to stage debut, Catherine can’t seem to keep her head above water. Along the way, the madness stops only long enough for musical numbers by Pearl Bailey, Spike Jones and His City Slickers, The Mulcays and a rare puppetoon version of “Romeow and Juliacat”. Topped off by an A-list all star variety revue, this is one of the most madcap and hilarious comedies ever filmed.
