    Disappointing and dull period drama of old Hollywood. The direction lacks any energy or wit or style.

  1. Bogdanovich takes a tale of old Hollywood and infuses it with velocity and enthusiasm.
  2. The film is better on mood than on message, sharply etching the professional desperation behind the forced gaiety.
  3. Bogdanovich adds touches to appeal to serious film fans.
