The backdrop is 1930's Hollywood.... a time when movie moguls ruled the studios and stars do what they're told for the sake of their latest picture. In this witty, tongue-in-check, musical comedy, Tyrone Power is Jimmy Sutton, the consummate studio publicist who knows how to get headlines - even if he has to make them up. Rudy Vallee is Roger Maxwell, the singing film star who needs all the attention he can get. And Sonja Henie is the Minnesota school teacher who miraculously lands the most coveted role in Consolidated Studio's newest picture Innocent and eager, she has no idea her exciting new "romance" with Roger was dreamed up by Sutton for the maximum news coverage. Snappy dialogue and a wonderful Irving Berlin score make Second Fiddle a charming fictional account of Hollywood in its heyday.
