THE "SHOW OF SHOWS" REALLY ISN'T

Seventy-seven Stars Plus 1,000 Beauties Are Too Much, Proving That Numbers Aren't Everything

By G. P.

The "Show of Shows" is another picture in the unhappy tradition of the "Fox Film Follies". "Hollywood Review", and the rest of the long and amazingly uninspired list of talking film spectacles.

Seventy-seven stars (count 'em) and "1000 Hollywood" beauties (try and count 'em) are appearing several times daily at the Olympic and Uptown Theatres. Although the whole revue is photographed in technicolor, there is little to distinguish it from its predecessors in the field. There is too much material to be handled in the large cast.

Hollywood celebrities are paraded across the stage in rapid succession. They are all there, but they don't prove very much. Some day we hope to see the real movie review, and it will be a modest, intimate affair, directed with some restraint and discretion.
