Hollywood Bound is a compilation of three, two-reel shorts made by Betty Grable early in her career at RKO Radio Pictures: "Ferry-Go-Round" (1934), "A Night at the Biltmore Bowl" (1935) and "The Spirit of 1976" (1935). The compilation was released at a time when Grable was one of the top-ten box office stars. As indicated by a copyright continuity, "A Night at the Biltmore Bowl" features cutaway shots of RKO celebrities attending the nightclub: Preston Foster, Anne Shirley, Bert Wheeler, Pert Kelton, Erik Rhodes and Edgar Kennedy. Hollywood Bound was submitted to the New York State censor board in mid-December 1946. A credit sheet deposited with the board and contained in the NYSA file on the film includes a 1946 copyright registration date, but the title was not found in the Copyright Catalog.
