Movies Artists and Models (Paramount 1937, Ida Lupino, Jack Benny) Published 5 months ago on September 17, 2018 Snappy musical comedy Artists and Models was helmed by Raoul Walsh with zippy Ida Lupino in the lead. Mac Brewster heads an advertising agency specializing in big, splashy song-and-dance numbers. When Mac is hired to host the Annual Artists and Models Competition, one of his employees, Paula Sewell, decides to enter. She faces stiff competition from the other, better-connected models contending for the title of the Queen of the Artists and Models. Artists & Models features a brief appearance by Pulitzer Prize-winning artist Rube Goldberg, best known for his illustrations of complex, whimsical machines. Goldberg also provided story and dialog for the 1930 Three Stooges film Soup to Nuts. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song (‘Whispers in the Dark’). Director: Raoul Walsh Producer: Lewis E.
