[Making It In Hollywood raw #84]

Raw footage from the 1976 documentary "Making It In Hollywood", which follows several actors as they attempt to break into the movie business. This tape takes place on the set of the made-for-TV movie "Stonestreet: Who Killed the Centerfold Model?" with actress Sally Kirkland. We watch Kirkland perform multiple takes of a scene; we watch the cast an d crew eat lunch. Leslie Stevens, the film's writer and producer, is interviewed about movie stardom. He classifies stardom into three categories: artistry, celebrity, and notoriety. Stevens goes on to discuss why some talented actors never become stars. He says stardom is determined by how an act or is "packaged" or "sold" to the public.
