Tall, slinky Anita Garvin took time out from menacing Laurel and Hardy to terrorize the female Stan and Ollie next door, Thelma Todd and ZaSu Pitts. Garvin plays the star attraction of a touring company eventually torn to shreds by Todd and Pitts and their (un)trained monkey. Interestingly, Show Business was directed by Jules White who later launched (and championed) the two-reel career of the Three Stooges. Indeed, White would remake Show Business with Moe, Larry, and Curly as A Pain in the Pullman (1936).
