Quotes

Narrator: [Last lines] All in all, Hollywood, with its glamor and unusual moods, is town unequaled in intrigue. A visitor bidding adieu, for a few moments anyway, has found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Week End in Hollywood (1947)

** (out of 4)

Hollywood Film Enterprises produced this documentary of Hollywood, which is more like a tour guide. We see various famous hot spots including Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Bowl, The Brown Derby, an aerial shot at Warner and the front gates at Republic Studios. This low budget film uses what appears to be stock footage, which includes a few famous faces including Bob Hope. The overall feel of the short is rather cheap and in the end we really don't see anything we haven't seen in other films with better quality. There's a few shots of Joe E. Brown, Clark Gable and Shirley Temple at Grauman's. If you have some time to kill and must view everything ever made about Hollywood then you might want to check this out but others should stay clear and watch something better on the subject.
