Name of short about "Alice Purdee"


Recommended Posts

Nevermind. I IMDb'd it after I typed all the below stuff. It's "Alice in Movieland" with Joan Leslie. And I didn't recognize her name, after all. I'll try IMDb first, next time.


Years ago I accidentally taped a short film off the late, late show while I slept, but the tape didn't begin to roll till after the opening credits. I'd seen the actress elsewhere but never could recall her name. The opening shot is of a newspaper headline that reads "Alice Purdee Wins Beauty Contest!" or some such line. Cut to pretty young Alice on a train, leaving her home town for Hollywood amid much fanfare. She arrives on a Hollywood movie set, is made the butt of pranks as a newbie but takes it in stride. I don't remember how it ended but I'm sure all went well for her. What was the name of the short and the actress? I remember she was a seriously cute brunette and I'm pretty sure I'd recognize her name if I heard it.
