The Hollywood Revue of 1929
MGM. 118m. bw(Technicolor sequences)
Extremely sluggish theatre-style revue complete with slowly parting curtains and total silent audience appreciation, one of MGM's more economical spectaculars using mostly mid-division stars in slightly out-of-character spots, including Laurel and Hardy, whose guest appearance is all too brief.
