Rate this:
To most Americans, Hollywood activism consists of self-obsessed movie stars making transparently liberal films in a desperate bid for Academy Award glory. There's some truth in that stereotype. But celebrity activism also exerts a subtle power over the American political process. Through money, networking, and image making, the movie industry has shaped the way that politics works for nearly a century. It has helped to forge a culture that is obsessed with celebrity and spectacle. In return, politics has become part of the fabric of Hollywood society. Using original archival research and exclusive interviews with stars, directors, producers, and politicians from both parties, this book tells the story of how Hollywood revolutionized American politics.
