Hullabaloo live at the Zenith, Paris by Muse (Rock group)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eager to make a name in radio, ex-vaudevillian Frank Merriweather (Frank Morgan) hits the airwaves by playing all the roles in a skit about Martian invaders. He plays the parts too well, raising panic in the streets and causing station brass to fire him. Hullabaloo's spoof of the Orson Welles' The War of the Worlds radio event is an antic highlight of this movie musical centered on merrily befogged Merriweather's attempt to restore his career-- all while reuniting with his three children (from his three alimony-seeking ex-wives!)."--Container

The bad and the beautiful by Vincente Minnelli( Visual )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Hollywood producer as anti-hero: the rise and fall of a charmingly authoritarian patriarch, obsessed with his own father, who stage manages the fate of those around him. Houseman, who co-scripted Citizen Kane, appears to have recycled the idea of "the great man" viewed in flashback from differing perspectives, here those of a director, a writer and an actress. The tawdriness of the factory of dreams is subsumed in the fantasia created by the lush intensity of Minnelli's style. The overriding power of "art" holds the melodrama at bay. "Art" excuses the tensions and the ruthless betrayals of its orchestrater. The film is enjoyably ironic and referential with allusions to Selznick, Hitchcock, Lewton, Von Stroheim and others
