Going Hollywood: Meet Fahim Anwar

People were going Hollywood long before Bing Crosby starred in the 1933 film musical Going Hollywood. Certainly, though, countless unknowns have packed their bags and moved to Los Angeles in the years and decades since then, hoping for show business to discover them and make them a star!

The sketch comedy film grossed $156,414 in its opening weekend at the box office at 275 theaters nationwide, for an average of $569 per location. Not the worst-ever opening, but that’s like making bomb-ade out of a bomb.
