Format: DVD
From 1931 through 1953, Monogram Pictures Corporation was known to create films in Hollywood on low budgets.

Among the talents used by Monogram Picture is actor Robert Lowery ("Batman and Robin", "Campus Rhythm", "'77 Sunset Strip") and actress Marjorie Weaver ("Second Honeymoon", "The Californian", "Young Mr. Lincoln"). For Weaver, the last film she would have a major role is the 1945 Monogram Pictures film "Fashion Model".

And now "Fashion Model" has been selected for release under Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's "Limited Edition Collection" which is the company's MOD (Manufactured-on-Demand) series, similar to Warner Bros. has done with Warner Archive and Sony's Columbia Classics.

The films do not have special features, nor have they been remastered, fixed-up or gone through any expensive restoration work. If anything, a lot of these films are targeted to a nice group of movie fans and collectors and are typically not the big giant titles that movie studios would want to promote.

And because Monogram Pictures films were low-budget films and the fact that interest in classic Hollywood is waning, fortunately, there is a niche group of movie fans, such as myself who value these films, high-budget or low-budget, just the opportunity to watch them brings happiness to us.

But with that being said, because these films are not sold for cheap and are sold typically under $20 with no special features and nothing but the film, this group expects a good print with no major problems with the disc.

So, before I go with my review for "Fashion Model", the question many will want to know first is... "Does it play?". I played this DVD on my Sony PlayStation 3 with no problems whatsoever. No stalling, no shadowing, no errors. It played perfectly.

I love '30s & '40s comedy-mysteries/whodunits and Marjorie Weaver and Robert Lowery were good when they were cast as a couple in two Charlie Chan movies. But Marjorie was rather annoying in the the first part of this movie. She was way over the top trying to be funny. But I would blame the director for that. She did chill some later on though and I'd still recommend the movie to those who enjoy this genre.

This was truly awful in every way--childish script, amateurish actors, lousy direction. It was really hard to believe that the writing could be so bad; it was like something written by a junior high creative writing class. There was nothing at all to recommend this bomb. Can't understand why it was ever made.

A mildly funny movie of that genre. A bit unbelievable, but that was the best part of movies from that era.

This is a fun light comedy / mystery that doesn't take itself too seriously. It is true to the era it was created. Not big on plot and not too believable but fun to watch as long as you can accept it for what it is.

The acting was a bit exaggerated. Body movement were exaggerated, too
The plot was not very interesting. It did not draw me in. It was predictable
Some of the clothing and jewelry was beautiful

I thought this would be worth watching to see the fashion in women's clothing at this period in time. But the actors are soooo irritating, I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes.
