DAFFY DUCK IN HOLLYWOOD (Theatrical Release USA 1938)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Daffy Duck in Hollywood—inbred cartoon that glorifies its origin—de-serves itself by its choice of subject matter. An audience usually likes to see the spoofs about their lives rather than a spoof about a life they are outsiders to. Everything in this short film is suitable but becomes mostly relevant to people within the industry rather than people outside the industry. The cartoon loses power due to that choice. However, one cannot deny the well-drawn character for the director while Daffy Duck needs a more defined characterization.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The best part of this toon is the development of the director’s character.
