Quick Overview

Starring William Powell, Mark Stevens, Betsy Drake, Adolphe Menjou, Randy Stuart, Lloyd

Corrigan, Walter Catlett

Directed by Irving Reis



Print: color

Runtime: 92 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



This musical comedy stars William Powell as Emery Slade, who was once a major film star

but lately isn't getting much work. Arrogantly determined to climb back to the top, Slade

convinces studio chief Melville Crossman (Adolphe Menjou) to give him the male lead in the

film version of a Broadway musical. However, Crossman's offer comes with a catch: Emery

has to persuade the show's female lead to appear in the movie. Slade heads to New York to

seal the deal, but instead he discovers a gifted young unknown named Julie Clark (Betsy

Drake) and decides she's perfect for the role. Crossman is not too enthusiastic about this

news, and neither is publicist Bill Davis (Mark Stevens), who is given his pink slip along with

Slade. However, Slade is determined to make a career for Julie in Hollywood, though it's not

until later that he realizes why he feels so strongly about her. Movie buffs will get a kick out

of Menjou's performance, closely modeled on 20th Century Fox boss Darryl F. Zanuck.
