This film short details the efforts of 'Emery, Suzanne' (qv) and her struggle to make it in Hollywood.

Using the filming of Cecil B. DeMille's _Crusades, The (1935)_ (qv) as a backdrop, Hollywood Extra Girl is notable for the two divergent paths of two of the actresses featured in this short: Suzanne Emory and Ann Sheridan. It's ironic that this short film is based around Miss Emory, and The Crusades ends up being her only credit on IMDb.

While 'Sheridan, Ann' (qv), who was also cast as an extra in The Crusades and has a brief appearance in Hollywood Extra Girl, would later go on to superstardom.

In hindsight, this short film should have featured Ann Sheridan as the starlet trying for film success. Of course, there was no way of knowing who would "make it" and who wouldn't.

All in all an interesting few minutes, with it's own small place in movie history.
