The Talk of Hollywood

The Talk of Hollywood

Movie: The Talk of Hollywood
Director: Mark Sandrich
Produced by: Prudence Pictures
Released By: Sono-Art
MPAA Rating:

This ambitious independently-produced musical was filmed in New York, utilizing the talents of several Broadway performers. Dialect comedian Nat Carr stars as movie mogul J. Pierpont Ginsburg, an amusing take-off of malaprop-spouting Sam Goldwyn. On the verge of bankruptcy, Ginsburg sinks every penny he has into a musical-comedy spectacular built around the questionable talents of French film siren Adore Renee. Meanwhile, Ginsburg’s daughter Hope Sutherland pursues a romance with her dad’s goyishe lawyer Sherline Oliver. In the climax, Ginsburg screens his masterpiece for a gathering of potential investors, only to discover to his horror that the soundtrack is out of synchronization with the picture. Perhaps unintentionally, Talk of Hollywood is funnier in its dramatic moments than in its comedy sequences.
