Audience Reviews for Star Dust


Starstruck girl makes her way to Hollywood, is discovered and becomes a star. Cliched and hackneyed it may be but this was actually a reworking of Linda Darnell's own story. Her's didn't end as happily as this, she actually watched this the night before she died in a fire.
