A Flavorful Teaser
If you don't mind cameo scenes shooting by faster than bullets, this 9-minutes is loaded. It's supposed to be 20-years of studio activity from 1924-1944, but we really only get glimpses of the first and last years. We do get a slick review of lush MGM productions from 1924, (Ben Hur, The Big Parade, et al.). However, the 30's are skipped over and we go directly to 1944, and the studio's cavalcade of stars plus features from that war year. (And did I see correctly, or is that a Code-defying young couple cuddling on the same bed! And what movie, pray tell, was that?) But most impressively, we get an aerial view of MGM's massive production facilities spread out like a city. And a big one. Wow!

Basically, the 9-minutes amounts to a studio promo. Nonetheless, it's still a nostalgic sprint across a Hollywood album of familiar faces and features. So old film fans, it's a short that remains flavorful despite the dispatch.
