A unique show was staged every Sunday night at the famous Trocadero nightclub in Hollywood. with agents, talent scouts and studio execs attending, plus many big-name stars of the movies. On this particular Sunday night, the looking-for-stardom (or a job) acts included the Brian Sisters, Connee Boswell, Peter Lind HAyes (billed as Lind Hayes). Reginald Deny was also on hand posing as a candid cameraman snapping shots of all the acts, and kidding the celebs in attendance as he gets them to pose for him.Written by

Kind of hokey, but some fun songs and dance numbers in here. George Hamilton is the emcee, and we start off with "Cuban Pete". The picture quality is quite good, but the sound is TERRIBLE... muted.. it stops and starts. some silly bits in between the dance numbers. Lots of big stars from the day popping up here and there... it was 1937, after all. "Anything but Love, Baby" by Connee Boswell, which is a VERY different version than we hear in ""Bringing up Baby". and some real silly, goofy bits, which may have been amusing at the time, but are pretty dated at this point. Fun to see some big names like Groucho Marx, Robert Benchley, Bert Wheeler, Eric Blore, and more. This one has some fun, old time big stars, but it's almost painful to sit through, with the poor sound quality. I would have turned it off, but I did want to see the film that came on after this. Shown in-between films on Turner Classic Movies. Directed by George Sidney, who had directed some biggies. Viva Las Vegas with Elvis, Scaramouche, Bye Bye Birdie, and Harvey Girls. interesting, for history's sake.
