Great Look at Hollywood
Hollywood on Parade No. B-5 (1933)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Winners of a beauty contest are invited to Hollywood and as soon as they arrive they want to see some famous people. Buster Crabbe and Lloyd Hamilton start off introducing themselves to the girl when Hamilton then announces that he's going to the party so naturally the girls want to go along.

We then flash to a Hollywood premiere where we see famous faces including Richard Barthelmess, Walter Huston, Max Baer, Loretta Young, Russ Columbo, Charlie Chaplin, Jackie Cooper and Mae West. We also visit the set of a Cecil B. DeMille picture where we see the director shaking hands with a few people. We then go to a costume party where we see Gloria Swanson dressed as Helen Hayes as well as Swanson's husband dressed up as FuManchu. Polly Moran dresses as Anna Mae Wrong and Fay Wray appears as she did in KING KONG. Edmond Lowe is dressed as Lionel Barrymore and we also get to see the Marx Brothers dressed up. Gary Cooper , Cary Grant, Fredric March and Mary Pickford are also at this party.

This here is certainly the best episode I've seen from the series simply because of the number of stars that we get to see. The party footage was pretty darn good and especially getting to see some famous faces dressed up as other legends. If you're a fan of this era of Hollywood then this is certainly a must-see.
