Other parts are mostly set on moon. Far side of moon is smaller than near side, has a huge crater where a city has been built - "Hollywood on the Moon". And yes, it's a tinsel town. A film director will go for shooting to asteroid & have adventures there.
Note.There are two curious things here that were popularized by other works later. But this is probably the earliest mention I've seen of these technologies.
- James Blish's "Cities in Flight" has New York city uprooted from ground along with its atmosphere & turned into a spaceship & has galactic adventures. In this Kuttner story, the city on moon has a local atmosphere held there by magical hand-wave while rest of the moon has no atmosphere; this is not really a domed city but one like in "Cities in Flight", only grounded.
- Inhabitants of lunar city prefer artificial radio-controlled animals for pets to the real thing. Sounds a bit like PKD's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"?
