Merton of the Movies
The third remake of the play by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly--originally done in 1924 and reprised eight years later as Make Me a Star--concerns a rural theater usher named Merton Gill (Red Skelton) who wins a trip to Hollywood. A stunt double (Virginia O'Brien) recognizes Merton's comic talents, and trains him to be a star comedian.
