A Special Treat for Film Buffs

MOVIE, MOVIE is a forgotten gem from the late 70's which is an affectionate spoof of a 1930's double feature (there's even a preview of coming attractions)that is divided into two separate films that run about 50 minutes a piece. The first film, "Dynamite Hands" is a black and white "Golden Boy"-type spoof with Harry Hamlin as a young boxer rising to the top with George C. Scott as his manager, Red Buttons as his trainer, Kathleen Beller as his hometown girlfriend and Ann Reinking as a nightclub singer named Troubles Moran. The second film is called "Baxter's Beauties of 1933" and is a colorful spoof of films like 42nd STREET with George C. Scott featured again as the egomaniacal director, Barry Bostwick as the idealistic young songwriter, Rebecca York (who years later would practically steal the Broadway show VICTOR/VICTORIA from Julie Andrews) as the young Ruby Keeler type and Trish VanDevere as the bitchy diva who York eventually replaces. True movie buffs and fans of these kinds of movies will be in cinema heaven here...a loving tribute to a bygone era that works thanks to spirited direction by Stanley Donen and an energetic cast.

Funny Funny

I saw this movie when it first came out and remember laughing hysterically. The VHS tape went out of print in the early '80s and I spent more than 15 years looking for a copy. I finally found one and while not quite as funny as I remember, it is a funny movie that found an audience. George C. Scott is great as always. Barry Bostwick is great as the accountant who wants to be a songwriter. The songs should be comedy classics, especially, "It Just Shows to Go Ya."

I've seen a butchered version on TV once that cut out a bunch of the set-ups that are needed to make the jokes work. So if at all possible find a uncut version.

Great! Great!

This is a film-fan's film, filled with industry insight and in-jokes. (The two back-to-back stories, separated by a preview trailer, display the way the fictional (real?) studio's contract players would crank out product at a dizzying rate.) I wouldn't apply the words "parody" and "satire" in their strictest sense here, though....I'd rather say the sounds and images serve more to emphasize our real-or-imagined memories of the moviegoing experience in the mid-to-late Thirties. And the producers had the good sense to hire the great Ralph Burns and Buster Davis to write the terrific period songs and soundtracks (which deserve current re-release!). See it if only to catch the multi-talented Barry Bostwick, who gets a chance to shine in a singing-dancing role. And Charles Lane is always a treat to see. Everything's a treat in "Movie Movie"!
