    o.k. fun musical lots of rare chances to see greats in action. smart move by dick powell ,to make career changes to serious acting parts and directing. you can see, this kind of fluff was running out of steam for him and his fans.

  • A feel good, Classic Hollywood thrill!

    Anyone who is familiar with Hollywood knows of "Hooray for Hollywood". This is where the legend began! "Hollywood Hotel" brings you into a 1930s Hollywood, which is very different than today's. "Hollywood Hotel" gets its name from the hotel of the same name (where Dick Powell stays in the movie), which is now the site of the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. "Hollywood Hotel" is a feel good movie with a fantastic soundtrack and great songs, and will get you in a good, classic Hollywood mood.

  • A Neglected, and Historic, Musical Comedy Gem!

    The "sound bite" of Johnny Scat Davis singing "Hooray for Hollywood" with the Benny Goodman band is used all the time on TV and radio--so why isn't this film better known? The entire score is wonderful (so is "Can't Teach My Old Heart New Tricks," written by Richard Whiting and Johnny Mercer for this film and cut--but, thank goodness, recorded by Goodman with Martha Tilton). Powell displays his flair for comedy--and the supporting cast includes a great lineup of character comics: Ted Healy, Edgar Kennedy, Allyn Joslyn, Grant Mitchell, Curt Bois, Hugh Herbert, Fritz Feld, Mabel Todd, Alan Mowbray, and on and on. It's a totally enjoyable film (much better than the often higher-rated "Varsity Show" from a year earlier with many of the same participants) and should be better remembered.

  • Great!

    One of my favorite Dick Powell movies! Great music that you'll keep humming to yourself! A wonderful cast. Just plain enjoyable!
