In this Tinseltown musical, Dick Powell plays a young man with big Hollywood dreams and a messy love triangle evolving with a pampered starlet and her fetching sister--played by real-life siblings Lola and Rosemary Lane. Director Busby Berkeley puts his stamp on the musical sequences swelling to the tunes "Hooray for Hollywood," "Let That Be a Lesson to You," and "Sing, Sing, Sing," which features Benny Goodman and his orchestra.
Description by Warner Home Video:
If you love music, check into Hollywood Hotel. The story's about a filmland newbie (Dick Powell) caught between a spoiled star (Lola Lane) and her likeable look-alike (Lola's look-alike sister Rosemary Lane). But the movie's about Busby Berkeley's ace direction - and music, music, music. The film opens with the jubilant debut of Tinseltown's unofficial anthem "Hooray For Hollywood". The jaunty "Let That Be A Lesson To You" shows off Berkeley's snazzy-jazzy mastery of editing and camera angles. And Benny Goodman and His Orchestra - including Harry James on trumpet and Gene Krupa on drums - swing, swing, swing into "Sing, Sing, Sing."
