Hollywood on Parade (1932 - 1934) is a series of short subjects released by Paramount Pictures.

Production background[edit]

One short (# B-9) is frequently misidentified as Curly Howard's first appearance on film, as cited by historians. This is because it was mistaken for a 1932 short when Criterion Pictures acquired the shorts for television distribution in the early 1950s, and slapped a generic title card on all films in this series with a 1932 copyright notice.

In fact, # B-9 was a 1934 Paramount release, and most likely filmed during a loan-out period for Howard from MGM, around the same time Ted Healy and the Three Stooges costarred in Myrt and Marge (1933) for Universal Studios.

This is one of only two movies to portray a live-action Betty Boop. The other is a Paramount short film Musical Justice (1931), in which Mae Questel portrays Betty Boop.
