Fade Out - Fade In

Overview

Fade Out - Fade In, a rollicking satire of Hollywood in the 1930s, takes place just after the introduction of talking pictures. Hope Springfield, an ebullient movie house usherette with no talent for performing, accidentally gets the starring role in a new movie. When the error is discovered, heads roll and the completed film is shelved. But Rudolf, the nephew of studio head Lionel Z. Governor, takes a liking to Hope and arranges for a sneak preview. The movie - surprisingly - is a success, and Hope becomes a star.
