Editor's Note
This wonderful Warner Bros. epic was one of the earliest talkie musicals with a Hollywood background -- and the last of its kind until 1933's SITTING PRETTY. Alice White stars as pert chorine Dixie Dugan, a character she'd played in 1928's SHOW GIRL (and one which would spin off into a long-running comic strip). This time, Dixie is brought to Hollywood to appear in a music titled THE RAINBOW GIRL. Thanks to the urgings of her egotistical director (John Miljan), the normally down-to-earth heroine begins acting like a haughty screen queen. Her temperamental behavior causes a shut-down of the production, ruining the comeback attempt of fading star Donna Harris (played by Blanche Sweet, who at 36 looks far younger than her "over-the-hill" character, who's supposed to be 32!) When Donna nearly commits suicide, Dixie realizes what a jerk she's been, and the show -- er, the movie -- goes on. A surprisingly accurate scene from SHOW GIRL IN HOLLYWOOD, showing a musical number "in production" on the sound stage has since been excerpted in several TV documentaries on the early sound era. The film originally ended with a Technicolor sequence depicting the premiere of the fictional THE RAINBOW GIRL, with several Warner Bros. employees (Al Jolson, Ruby Keeler, Loretta Young and Walter Pidgeon) in attendance.

What is MOD media?

MOD means manufatured on demand. The disc is created after the customer orders and comes on a DVD-R. DVD-Rs look like the discs you're used to and offer the same audio and image quality. This recordable media is used to manufacture titles on demand, as fully authorized by the content provider. Each disc comes fully packaged, with artwork, in a standard Amaray case for DVD, although for reissued products the artwork may differ from the original.

By eliminating inventory, waste, and inefficiencies in the distribution system, on-demand manufacturing provides the added benefit of helping preserve the environment.
