Summary
How politics, propaganda, and profits sparked the drama, imagery, and fantasy of 1940s film--and marched America off to fight World War II. The authors examine how one of America's largest and most lucrative industries was enlisted as an enthusiastic recruiter for Uncle Sam to create scores of "entertainment" pictures in which blatant morale-building propaganda messages received top billing. Revealed is the powerful role of FDR's Office of War Information, staffed by some of America's most famous intellectuals. Intent on portraying the government's interpretation of the war, OWI officials participated in pre-production conferences, reviewed content, and pressured filmmakers to change scripts and even drop movies they deemed objectionable. Ironically, the film industry's own self-censorship system, the Hays Office, paved the way for government censors. The relationship between Washington and Hollywood was not an easy one, however; the authors reconstruct the power struggles between moguls, writers, directors, stars and politicians all seeking to project their own visions on the silver screen.--From publisher description
