William Haines is Aging Rapidly
29 July 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This is one of those hodge-podge efforts that makes you wonder if it was planned so much as grew. The main plot concerns movie publicity man William Haines -- he appeared for two movies for Mascot this year, for no clear reason -- who promotes girlfriend Judith Allen into a star, but she leaves him over the constant work and pointless publicity stunts.

This state of affairs is interrupted by some musical numbers. In the first, the WAMPAS babies get to dance with men in masks representing then-hot stars, and in the second, Shaw and Lee (yay!) wander by with a piano and Ted Weems' old vocalist sits down and kicks over a chorus show. This soon vanishes to resume the story.

Perhaps this movie was begun before the Production Code bore down and the interludes were added to bring it up to Feature length. The individual bits are pretty good, although the line readings are a bit weak.
