Hollywood Party DVD Review


Synopsis: The screen’s great Schnarzan (Jimmy Durante) wants to wow the visiting Baron Munchausen (Jack Pearl, reprising his familiar vaudeville and radio character) by throwing him a big, bustling Tinseltown bash. Hollywood Party – 8 directors and 8 writers (2 credited) strong – is the wild, wildly inconsistent but ever fun musical-novelty result, packed with kicky dance montages offering pre-Code chorines and Berkeley-like kaleidoscopic shots, spiked with a color cartoon insert from Walt Disney, muscled up with Schnarzan’s lion-wrasslin,’ and thronged with notables (including Mickey Mouse, Ted Healy and his Stooges and Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy, who put an egg in Lupe Velez’s shoe and are duly repaid). Dress to impress!

Review: Hollywood party is absolutely crazy!  We love vintage film here at the Legion and this one definately doesn't disappoint!  Its full of great dance numbers, weird scenes and misc. oddity.  I'm not even sure how to describe it to you..its kinda trippy!  This is one of the lastest releases on the Warner Archive...you can get this only online, so don't watch for this one in stores.  We definately recommend checking it out if you enjoy old hollywood the talent that used to go into productions.  This one has everyone from the Three Stooges to Laurel and Hardy!

Interest Range: Vintage, Comedy
