SCREEN ODDITIES - FAMOUS FUNNIES #23




William Powell, Mary Astor, and Helen Mack are among the stars featured this time. Mention is made of cellophane being used in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. Cellophane was fairly new at the time and they had some publicity related to it when it was used in the movies.

OLLY OF THE MOVIES - FAMOUS FUNNIES #23




Seeing Ginsberg from behind in a 1930's bathing suit, they fail to recognize him and offer him a job as an extra in their movie, which he declines when he learns that it would involve swimming. Another man whom no one recognizes is then offered the job.







While attempting to shoot a movie scene, Olly of the movies comes across Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, and Busby Berkeley shooting a scene which seem to be for the movie DAMES. "Bangem" is the Jimmy Cagney character again.
