Star Spangled Rhythm (1942) was a Comedy - Musical Film directed by A. Edward Sutherland and George Marshall and produced by Joseph Sistrom.
Paramount opens the famous front gates and gives classic-movie fans a cinematic time machine back to wartime days. Most anyone associated with the studio at the time (actors and directors both) shows up in this charming story of a soldier (Bracken) coming home to visit his father (Moore), once a cowboy star and now the studio gatekeeper. Moore and switchboard operator Hutton have convinced Bracken that Pop runs the place, and the studio personnel love him enough to keep up the facade. A rare chance to get a glimpse at studio life of the classic era.
