      Comments about WAC Double Features: Make Me a Star/Merton of the Movies (MOD):

      I am reviewing "Make Me a Star," which is wonderful, warm, and poignant, because "Merton of the Movies" is not. I really like both Red Skelton and Virginia O'Brien but he is not funny in this movie and she doesn't sing. The older film never fails to captivate and the performances are real. "Make Me a Star" is worth the price, even if you never watch the other film.

      A real surprise...

      Comments about WAC Double Features: Make Me a Star/Merton of the Movies (MOD):

      I expected Stu Erwin and Make Me a Star to be creaky and obvious, and I anticipated really enjoying the Red Skelton remake. It was just the opposite. Make Me a Star has genuine emotion to it, and a sweetness that is totally lacking from the Skelton movie, which is broad and obvious and hokey. Both are worth watching, though, and one, Make Me a Star, is a delight.
