At Zenith Studios, a starlet plots an escape to Hollywood with her lover and the murder of her superfluous husband.



It was Asquith's first film as a director. It was made at Cricklewood Studios in North London for British Instructional Films. The novelisation of the film was written by the popular novelist E. Charles Vivian.[2]


Shooting Stars was restored in 2015 by the British Film Institute with a new score by John Altman. The new print premiered as the Archive Gala of the 2015 London Film Festival.
