Movie Info

Bookish bank employee Atterbury Dodd (Leslie Howard) is ordered to investigate the near-bankrupt Colossal Studios in Hollywood, to see if the firm is any sort of good risk. Dodd's first brush with Tinseltown's cuckoo atmosphere occurs when he takes a room in a boarding house for extras, where all manner of eccentrics wander about as they wait for the phone to ring (Charles Middleton comports himself in an Abe Lincoln costume, on the off-chance that Hollywood will go back to making Civil War

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

    1. Koslofski: Mr. Quintain, you will please do me the courtesy of not making love to my fiancee... in my presence.
    2. Douglas Quintain: Listen, slug. I was making love to your fiancee long before they lifted that wet rock and you crawled out.
