Critic Reviews for Going Hollywood

All Critics (5)

Fifi has a remarkable temperament, a number of questionable but fascinating habits and a leading part in Bing Crosby's picture. She also has Bing Crosby.

July 23, 2019 | Full Review…

A routine behind-the-scenes story, duller than most, with Marion Davies featuring a wide grin permanently astride her lips. Bing Crosby sings throughout practically every inch of the film, which may be fine if you like him, but if you don't...

Going Hollywood (1933) is just the sort of bizarre musical that needs to be seen to be believed.

November 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Musical with delightful musical numbers and Raoul Walsh's usual zest.

July 17, 2009 | Full Review…

It never amounts to more than a programmer, but it's entertaining fluff.
