Review by anonymous (posted on 6-Jan-2007)

Yes , this movie also includes Stu Erwin and silent film star Ben Turpin. The movie is about a smalltown grocery clerk (Stu Erwin) who yearns to be a serious Cowboy movie star and is helped by Joan Blondel. She talks to a movie director on his behalf to try and help him accomplish his dream. He ends up being duped into playing a bumbling cowboy and the movie is a hit. He feels he has been embarrased and wants to go back to his small town. It ends with Joan Blondel talking him into staying in the movies. Very funny movie
