The Hollywood producer as anti-hero: the rise and fall of a charmingly authoritarian patriarch, obsessed with his own father, who stage manages the fate of those around him. Houseman, who co-scripted Citizen Kane, appears to have recycled the idea of "the great man" viewed in flashback from differing perspectives, here those of a director, a writer and an actress. The tawdriness of the factory of dreams is subsumed in the fantasia created by the lush intensity of Minnelli's style. The overriding power of "art" holds the melodrama at bay. "Art" excuses the tensions and the ruthless betrayals of its orchestrater. The film is enjoyably ironic and referential with allusions to Selznick, Hitchcock, Lewton, Von Stroheim and others
