Movie Info

In 1937, Patricia Douglas was a 20-year-old living in Hollywood with her mother, a dressmaker. Patricia was a talented dancer who had landed bit parts in several movies when she was hired for what she was told would be a day's work at the Hal Roach Studios in a project for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. However, the truth was Patricia was one of 120 young woman hired as hostesses for a wild party being thrown by MGM for 282 regional sales men from distribution branches around the country.

Writer David Stenn stumbled across the shocking story of Patricia Douglas and MGM around the time he was finishing his biography of Jean Harlow, and he immediately sprang into action.

[Girl 27] not without fascination, in part because he's dug up extraordinary footage that features Douglas and her attacker. He also dug up Douglas herself, and it's her story that dominates the movie.

Pic's self-serving approach is contemptible.

Girl 27 is about the moral hypocrisy of Hollywood as well as a testament to the lingering damage inflicted by rape.

This stunning expose of Hollywood's buried scandal is a revelation about the movie industry's influence, and a well-documented backgrounder on Hollywood's 'casting couch' attitude towards women

Archival clips and personal interviews tell a fascinating story of a girl done in by the corruption of MGM, the District Attorney, her attorney, and her own mother!

Audience Reviews for Girl 27

Harrowing, sad story of how an unconscionable act covered up by an all mighty studio system basically crushed and twisted an innocent young woman into a frigid, completely shut down woman. Interesting side stories too. The only small issue is that the film maker, who obviously feels strongly about the case, inserts himself into the film a bit too much.

A very good documentary about the seediness of old Hollywood. I was amazed at all the old footage that was available for this story and it really brought the past to life.
Definitely recommended for those interested in the past Hollywood.
