Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Chorus girl Barbara Bedford is left broke and stranded by a crooked producer in Backstage. Her good-hearted stage manager pal allows her and the other cast members to stay in his apartment until another job comes along. Unfortunately, our heroine's nerdish boyfriend William Collier Jr. doesn't grasp the situation. Most showbiz films of the 1920s were essentially excuses to show off plenty of female epidermis, and Backstage is no exception. Its pulchritude quotient notwithstanding, the film is quite innocent when compared to such contemporary efforts as Showgirls.
