Two major selling point despite its blandness
It happened in Hollywood is by no means a perfect film. Nevertheless I urge everyone to see it because of two reasons.

On the one hand it's an interesting look at the shift from Silent Films to Talkies not merely 10 years after the industry had changed and endet the carriers of hundreds of actors.

On the other hand there are 6 minutes near the end where close to all first grade movie stars of that time "meet" and "party" together. Dietrich kinda meets Garbo kinda meets Chaplin kinda meets Lloyd kinda meets ... and its such a joy to watch.
