Hollywood, City of Dreams (Spanish:Hollywood, ciudad de ensueno) is a 1931 American drama film directed by George Crone and starring José Bohr, Lia Torá and Donald Reed.[1] It was a Spanish-language film made in the United States, as part of an effort to reach Spanish-speaking audiences around the world following the introduction of sound. Unlike some other Spanish-language films of the era, it was not a remake of an English film but an original story.
