Director and writer Jon Bang Carlson once travelled to Hollywood briefly and while there stayed at the Montecito Hotel on Franklin St., the "Hotel of the Stars" -- that in reality houses aspiring actors and bit players. The documentary is enhanced by small fictional inserts that help dramatize the life of thespians as they wait to be called back or wait for the next audition, or just wait in-between jobs -- waiting is the key word. Residents in the hotel include Dan Patterson, Zoe Andre, Wanda Nuwicki, and other unknowns who would rather remain poor actors than give up and enter the mainstream employment market.
