In the early sound years, the major Hollywood movie studios became so determined to get their contract stars known by audiences world-wide that they hit on the idea of ditching storyline & plot in favour of a theatre-style revue format, with each actor performing his or her party piece. This is Warner Brothers' definitive version, featuring some of the biggest stars of 1929, including John Barrymore, Douglas Fairbanks Jnr. and Myrna Loy. Where else could you see such a rarity ?

Average score 5.4
