This short tries to show that in some ways, the actors we see in the movies are just like us. They have mortgages to pay and families to raise. They also have interests and businesses not related to acting. Performers' faces are shown on the screen as the narrator tells of their non-show-business activities. Most of them are shown in quick excerpts from unidentified films. A few, such as Reginald Denny, Gail Patrick, and Dan Duryea are shown engaging in their outside pursuits.Written by

The only known M.G.M. movie that Linda Darnell was in. Metro Goldwyn Mayer had to get written permission from Twentieth Century-Fox to use Linda Darnell's image. Though Louis B. Mayer and M.G.M. tried to borrow Linda Darnell and Carole Landis, who were both under contract to Fox at the time, to be in an M.G.M. short to be filmed on the Metro lot Darryl F. Zanuck refused to loan the two actresses to M.G.M. for the short. See more »
Film buffs will certainly get a kick out of this short, which tries to show how actors are just like real people. The film talks about the early days of actors when they had to travel by stagecoach and then we get to see how some famous faces like to enjoy their free time. We see Clark Gable on a farm, Lionel Barrymore writing music and we also get to see Donna Reed, Gene Autry, Joan Crawford, Donald Crisp, Bing Crosby, Ava Gardner, Greer Garson, Joel McCrae, Gene Kelly and many others. If you're a fan of film and like seeing major stars together then you'll get a kick out of this short even though the majority of the material is from other movies. We also get a brief look at how the SAG meets as well as some room donated by famous actors for those just starting out.
