Chong: So what's this movie about, man?
Cheech: Oh, it's about all kinds of things, man – it's like a bunch of crazy movies, man, they put together...
Opening dialogue

It Came from Hollywood is a 1982 comedy film compiling clips from various B Movies. Made at a time years before the Internet and with home video still just taking off, this film was basically a funny Clip Show of old B movies that were still hard to find in its day and age.

Featuring comedians Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Cheech & Chong, and Gilda Radner in a number of framing segments, the film fondly remembers and pokes fun at the genre with sections like Giants and Little People, Monsters, Brains, etc. Some framing clips have a simple story, like a little girl (Radner) on her bed talking about scary movies, or Cheech and Chong going to the movies and talking about the films as if they are watching them. At one point Candy and Aykroyd host a short celebration of Ed Wood.

The movie is available to watch on YouTube here.
