Hollywood Story (1951)

Director:

 William Castle

Writers:

 Frederick Kohner (story), Frederick Brady (story) (as Fred Brady)

Stars:

 Richard Conte, Julie Adams, Richard Egan
 
Economically utilizing the Universal Studio itself as a "set," Hollywood Story is a murder mystery centered in the film capital. The story concerns a long-unsolved homicide case involving several silent-film stars (an echo of the William Desmond Taylor scandal of 1922). Producer Richard Contedecides to make a movie based on the case, and to this end rounds up its surviving participants, including a once-great star/director (Henry Hull) reduced to bit parts. The denouement holds no surprises for mystery fans, but is effectively staged by director William CastleHollywood Story is given the aura of verisimilitude by the presence of several silent-movie celebrities (including William Farnum and Francis X. Bushman) as "themselves." Also appearing in an unheralded bit part is Elmo Lincoln, moviedom's first "Tarzan."

  1. HOLLYWOOD STORY 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 4th 2016

    Pretty good transfer of a slightly beat up 16mm print of an entertaining B-pic with a good cast.
    Some splices and lines, but where else are you going to see this?
