WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD?

Original Theatrical Date:

Sassy and ambitious waitress Mary Evans (Constance Bennett) amuses and befriends seldom-sober director Max Carey (Lowell Sherman), who stumbles into her restaurant. Max invites Mary to his film premiere and, after a night of drinking and carousing, Mary charms her way into a screen test and then a contract with a movie studio. Just as Mary finds her dreams coming true and her career on the upswing, Cary's life and career begins its descent.

A seldom-seen gem from the oeuvre of famed film director George Cukor, What Price Hollywood? takes a shrewd, playful and pragmatic view of cinematic life from the other side of the camera, and created the blueprint from which all other “true-life Hollywood tell-alls” have been created, including A Star Is Born, in the 1954 version of which Cukor directed Judy Garland.
