Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies and the American Dream

Poster for Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies and the American Dream Based on Neal Gabler's best-selling book An Empire of Their Own, this feature-length documentary tells the story of the men who founded Hollywood. Adolph Zukor, founder of Paramount; Carl Laemmle, founder of Universal; the Warner brothers, Harry and Jack; Louis B. Mayer, founder of MGM; William Fox of 20th Century Fox; and Harry Cohn, head of Columbia. All were immigrants, or children of immigrants, who wanted to reinvent themselves as Americans. In the process, they reinvented America. First hand accounts of the movie moguls' lives are told through a series of original interviews with their children and grandchildren, and with comments by film historians, critics, actors and producers.
