The names are written in concrete.
A title which has often be used (with or without a hyphen)."Star Dust" depicts the rising of new stars and mainly the long road they have got to follow to hit the big time in Hollywood-although it is a short film and Darnell's and Payne's road does not seem a very rocky one.They make an attractive pair,a singing faux cowboy -actually a football player- and a young student who works as a waitress in a coffee shop and learns the algebraic (or trigonometric ? )formulas while serving the guests who sometimes are talent scouts ,Cinderella's good fairy.The best moment is the movie in the movie : Linda Darnell ,as if her life depended upon this screen test (and it did anyway) ,outdoes herself and is better than in the rest of the film.
