    This unique documentary is a time capsule of Hollywood in the 1970s and the American obsession with fame. It follows a few of the thousands of people who come to Los Angeles every year to “make it” as actors and actresses–at their day jobs, going to auditions, and waiting for acting work at legendary Schwab’s Drug Store.
