Here's an hilarious, fast-paced, eye-popping farce from the author of Destiny and The Butler Did It.

Film producer Junior Dover (Jr.) hasn't made a picture since his last flop, "Zombies of the Stratosphere." But his latest project has everything, "from earthquakes to savage lobsters." Junior induces every major Hollywood star, a few has-beens, and even a maybe, to appear by tailoring separate scripts to meet each star's personal requirements. So each star assumes he or she "is" the whole picture, with the other Greats relegated to supporting roles - an assumption that leads to all kinds of madcap stage frenzy. How Junior manages to stay one jump ahead of disaster makes this play a champion laugh-getter! This is Hollywood, after all! Anything can happen, and does! All the parts give a comically ludicrous sweep to the legend that is Hollywood!
