Description by OLDIES.com:
Some of them looked a little nervous in their first movie role, like six-year old Liz Taylor as she sang with Alpha of "Little Rascals" fame; others came off as pros like Kirk Douglas in his film debut playing opposite Barbara Stanwyck. See them as beginners, including young Elvis Presley, John Travolta, Sophia Loren, Al Pacino, Cary Grant and a bevy of wanna-be movie stars who are in this amazing documentary that relates how Hollywood's greatest icons broke into filmdom, complete with clips of their first movie roles. With no experience and sometimes armed with nothing more than sheer nerve, they stood before the camera for the very first time and you can see them here in this documentary. Witness Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate; Marilyn Monroe as she portrayed a stripper in her film debut; Goldie Hawn, Woody Allen, Jack Nickolson and Kim Novak are among the dozens of actors and actresses whose first movie appearances are the subject of this entertaining documentary.
This documentary contains clips from the movie debuts of a some of the most iconic film stars of their rime including John Travolta, Al Pacino, and Kirk Douglas.
