HOLLYWOOD PARTY had a troubled production that took 7 months (August 1933 - March 1934), involving reshoots, several Assistant Directors, re-edits, etc. Healy & The Stooges filmed their scene sometime during August - October 1933 (exact date unknown).
In spite of the rivalry between MGM and Disney, Walt Disney accepted Louis B. Mayer's request to supply the film's Technicolor animated sequence "The Chocolate Soldiers," with an introduction by Mickey Mouse voiced by Walt Disney.
Laurel and Hardy costar as the Baron's lion deliverymen; they engage in a hilarious tit-for-tat routine with Lupe Velez.
The Stooges' scene, as well as scenes with Durante and Laurel & Hardy, were reused in the MGM compilation feature MGM'S THE BIG PARADE OF COMEDY (1964).

The film plays out almost as a sketch comedy, with Jimmy Durante's plot playing the string that hooks random segments of party guests together. The funniest moments go to Jack Pearl, who is reprising his radio personality of Baron Munchausen.
"This is the son of King Kong! His name…is Ping Pong!"
By the end of its runtime, Hollywood Party runs very tired. It's a little sad, since it's barely an hour long, but it has enough steam to keep its wacky situations going for such a short period.
