There's something fascinating about the glitz and glamour of 1930s Hollywood
—the era when big film studios ruled the roost and star-studded movie extravaganzas
were cranked out in mass quantities. It was a time of great success and productivity for the motion picture capital; it was also a time often characterized by scandal, greed, and the sacrifice of art for the sake of monetary gain. In short, Hollywood in its heyday was a typical moneymaking machine that was ripe for social satire—borne out in this fictionalized account of Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw's real-life visit to Tinseltown.
