An all-star comedy with the barest wisp of a plot about some newfangled television device called a radioscope, INTERNATIONAL HOUSE was really just an excuse for some comics, singers, dancers, and radio personalities to do their respective things. Some dull moments along the way, but mostly the film is a delightful snapshot of enduring and forgotten entertainers from a bygone era (although most of them have been seen to better effect in other films). It almost goes without saying that W.C. Fields steals the picture. And in case you're wondering who Peggy Hopkins Joyce was and why she rated billing over Fields, she was something of the Paris Hilton of her day, and every bit Ms. Hilton's equal in the talent department. ½ - JL
