The Reviews for Hollywood Story (1951) 720p


A good mystery with a fascinating back storyReviewed bytbrittreidVote: 7/10

My position is exactly the same as that of bsnmsn. I saw this on "The Late Show" (for me, a locally-operated movie slot following the post-prime time news), where I saw numerous great, old films. Then, years later I learned about the William Desmond Taylor murder and recognized the parallels to this movie. Just couldn't be coincidence. I think I've seen "Hollywood Story" once since then, either on local TV in the late 70s to early 80s, or on a cable channel (TBS, WGN, WOR) in the early 80s. I keep scouring the listings of Turner Classic Movies for it, but so far no luck. BTW, I gave it a 7 out of 10, dropping a little because I remember it as looking somewhat low-budget; it IS an early William Castle effort.

Surprisingly good mystery with silent-film era plotReviewed bydjango-1Vote: 10/10

I got this film because I like 40s/50s mysteries, because I like Richard Conte, and because it was directed by William Castle and thus HAD to be interesting. Actually, it is an excellent little mystery. New York-based producer Conte comes out to LA to make some films and rents an old studio building that hasn't been used since the silent era (which was only 22 years ago at the time of this film). The last year of silents, 1929, a major silent director was killed at the studio, and the case has never been solved. Conte decides to research the director and the murder for a film plot--he digs up a few of the people who worked at the studio and learns more about the mystery... while a new mystery starts to develop and the guilty party from 1929 starts to cause trouble again. It's as cleverly plotted as the best Columbo or Perry Mason episode, and Conte as always is powerful and sympathetic. He was one of the great post-WWII stars and his work should be revived today--watch THE BROTHERS RICO sometime! Great supporting cast with Jim Backus, Richard Egan, the lovely Julie Adams, and silent star and 30s independent-film regular William Farnum. It's always good to be pleasantly surprised by a film that delivers much more than you expected, and this is such a nice little mystery. It's not on video or DVD, but keep your eye out for it.

Richard Conte isn't the bad guy for a changeReviewed byHotToastyRagVote: 6/10

Anyone want to see Richard Conte as the good guy? There aren't too many movies to fit the bill, so you might want to rent Hollywood Story if you're a fan of his. He stars as a movie producer interested in making a movie about a real-life Hollywood scandal. Back in the silent era, an unsolved murder stopped the careers of an actress, a director, and a writer. Richard actually hires the writer, now unemployed and living in squalor, to create the screenplay!

Henry Hull, the writer, is very funny in this movie. He starts off unshaven, broke, and sleeping in a hammock, but when he thinks his career has been revived, he dresses to the nines and changes to an affected accent. Director Fred Clark isn't too keen on making the movie, and neither is policeman Richard Egan. With so many obstacles in the way, Richard soon finds himself the target of danger as he learns too much.

Yes, this is a bit of a knock-off of Sunset Blvd., especially since there are a few cameos from real movie stars playing themselves (Francis Bushman, Betty Blythe, William Farnum, Helen Gibson, and Joel McCrea). It's not the greatest mystery movie you'll ever watch, so you'd better be devoted to the cast in order to enjoy it.
