MORE INFO ON MARJORIE WOODWORTH: Hal Roach tried to launch a new star with his 1941 farce Broadway Limited only to discover what most of Hollywood already knew: Stars aren't made, they're born. But he still came up with a spirited comedy that provided a nice showcase for some of Hollywood's best comic sidekicks. He even launched another Hollywood stalwart, though it wasn't a human one.

The star Roach tried to create was Marjorie Woodworth, a blonde beauty he was grooming to become the next Jean Harlow. After a few walk-ons, she had signed with Hal Roach Productions, where she started out with a supporting role in 1941's Road Show, which also featured Broadway Limited co-stars Patsy Kelly and George E. Stone. She followed with her first leading role, as a rising star riding the "Broadway Limited" from Chicago to New York. Her producer (Leonid Kinskey) arranges to borrow a baby for a publicity stunt, only to get them all implicated in a high-speed kidnapping investigation.

MORE INFO ON HAL ROACH: Hal Roach was born in Elmira, New York in 1892. After working as, among other things, a gold prospector, he wound up in Hollywood and began picking up jobs as an extra in comedies, where he met comedian Harold Lloyd. He began producing, directing and writing a series of short film comedies starring Lloyd around 1915. These were quite successful, and Roach started his own production company and eventually bought his own studio. By the early 1920s he had eclipsed Mack Sennett as the King of Comedy and created many of the most memorable comic series of all time, even by today's standards. These include the team of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Charley Chase and The Little Rascals. By the late 1930s Roach's formula for success was jeopardized by audience demands for bigger, feature-length productions, and he was forced to try his hand at making full-length screwball comedies, musicals and dramas, although he still kept turning out two-reel comedies. By the 1950s he was producing mainly for television. In 1983 his company developed the first successful digital colorization process. Roach then became a producer for many TV series on the Disney Channel, and his company still produces most of their films and videos.
