Critic Reviews for Stand-In
Inane spoof on Hollywood, deteriorates in the second half to drivel.
Clever, overlooked Hollywood satire from the quirky Tay Garnett.
Audience Reviews for Stand-In
a sweet satire of the movie industry. leslie howard plays a strait-laced accountant sent in to cut costs at colossal studios, only to discover not everything is reducible to a balance sheet. humphrey bogart, in only his second film role, plays a drunken producer, and joan blondell, stand-in for the studio's diva, is leslie's adorable love interest. includes a hilarious shirley temple spoof
|Douglas Quintain:||Hey honey, if you could cook, I'd marry ya.|
|Lester Plum:||Yeah, but most of the finder-outters get their list of items from the screwer-uppers.|
|Koslofski:||Mr. Quintain, you will please do me the courtesy of not making love to my fiancee... in my presence.|
|Douglas Quintain:||Listen, slug. I was making love to your fiancee long before they lifted that wet rock and you crawled out.|
