Storyline

The show opens with the "gossip of the day" in which a Hedda Hopper-ized Holland Taylor mixes tales of the studio era, circa 1937, with the behind the scenes stories of our friends at the mythical Silver Screen Pictures. The plot then develops, often containing crude references to real life stars of yesteryear combined with failed attempts at witty dialogue and plot points that are often inconceivable, i.e. random "raids" on various parties and clubs, although prohibition ended 4 years earlier. The show ends the same way it began, with a sometimes drunk Hedda-Holland giving us a bit of "juicy gossip" about our "favorite" stars, then proceeding to insult them once her radio minute is over. Written by Susan L. Minnick

Crude and embarrassing! What more can one say?
18 May 2001 | by RAS-1See all my reviews

It's hard to grasp why this silly series was ever made. AMC's weekly episodic promos indicate each show was patterned after an actual event. If there is any similitude to an actual historical Hollywood happening, public or clandestine, I can't find it. Somewhat disjointed story-wise, there are a few nice sets. Especially nice is the dungeon-appearing set in which character Colin Rhome (Michael York) displays his prowess as a master swordsman. Not many laughs to be had, but there is one particular funny moment when a Maitre'D presents the bar bill to a "dead" Colin Rhome. However the scene was abruptly interrupted by one of AMC's clumsy commercial breaks, destroying the moment and further displaying their inept degree of showmanship. Probably the most harmful aspect of this series is the abundance of vulgar insinuations, of which there are many. Of course the viewer must have his/her mind in the proper canal in order to catch on. It makes one wonder where the minds of the writers live.
