The Music Can't Save It
Hollywood Hotel features the Benny Goodman band and quartet at their peak and preserves some of the best swing era music on film. The movie also introduces Johnny Mercer's immortal "Hooray for Hollywood." Unfortunately, that's it. A trite plot, a witless script, unappealing performers, and lifeless production numbers will soon wear you down. Twenty-six year old Ronald Reagan pops up as a radio announcer at a premiere, but you'll probably be dozing by then. Tasteless and at times even racist, the film is a huge disappointment.
