Pearl White (Betty Hutton), a beautiful but talentless sweatshop girl, wins a spot in a theater company run by Michael Farrington (John Lund), with whom she becomes involved. But after a dispute with Mike, Pearl quits, hoping to try her luck in movies. When a film director humiliates her best friend, however, Pearl wreaks havoc all over the studio lot.

Audience Reviews for The Perils of Pauline

  • Jun 16, 2019
    Hollywood uses the fame of silent film star Pearl White as an attraction, and a starting point, in this musical Betty Hutton feature. It's tailored specifically to Ms. Hutton's talents and that it does very well. Those looking for a documentary about the life of Pearl White should look elsewhere, but the work does convey something of what the early days of the silents may have been like. Charles Demerest is excellent as a cliché Hollywood producer.

    Not really a bio of Pearl White, but a perfect vehicle for Betty's unique talents. She's bursting with energy as usual but not quite to the obnoxious degree she could sometimes attain.
