Backstage satire of studio filmmaking
14 December 2002 | by max von meyerlingSee all my reviews

Fritz Feld is the best thing in this as the definitive wacky european film director with crazy artistic pretensions which he would reprise many times, lastly in Woody Allen's TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN. Great early technicolor (look for Pat O'Brien's kelly green car.
