5.0 étoiles sur 5 we were "treated" to "Capitalism bad, socialism good" indoctrination by Hollywood 9 septembre 2014
Par Elizabeth K. Gregory - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For those of us who are political junkies and who despise the Left wing propaganda that comes at us from Hollywood and TV, "Red Star Over Hollywood" shows where it all started. In the past, we were "treated" to "Capitalism bad, socialism good" indoctrination by Hollywood, but back then, it was more subtle and so more tolerable. Today they hit you upside the head with it which may well be the reason half of us no longer go to the movies. It gets boring hearing how wonderful socialism is for those who live in mansions behind high fences patrolled by armed guards (all of them), how marvelous public schools are when their kids go to private schools (Matt Damon) and/or that our stinky cars are polluting this beautiful world even as they take private jets and fly first class to Europe (all of them, especially Leo DiCaprio).
5.0 étoiles sur 5 glimpsing today's Hollywood 12 avril 2016

written with a moderate tone - and with almost 40 pages of footnotes - mostly citing the communists themselves - this book is highly-researched non-hysterical examination of the communist machinations in Hollywood from the 30s thru the HUAC hearings - it made for fascinating reading

i came away with a clearer & more convincing picture highly at odds with the leftwing narrative that has dominated since the 60s - and with a better sense of today's Hollywood

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A More Balanced Treatment of Both "Blacklists" 22 avril 2011
Par Kelly L. Norman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A few years ago, I reviewed Hollywood Party: How Communism Seduced the American Film Industry in the 1930s and 1940s, Lloyd Billingsley's scathing history of a film colony that is always trying to have their cake and eat it to: in this case, embracing Communism and the Soviet Union and frequently disowning the US during party activities....but insisting they weren't Communists or that they were at the most starry-eyed Communist, Jr.s who were still patriots (this was a hard stance to take in the thirties and forties, because as we know now, the US parties relied heavily on Moscow gold, frequently being led by the hand that fed them). I loved it. But I love the Radoshes' book better. Ronald Radosh brings in the perspective of a former party member and leftist with ongoing ties to old friends. While he does not forgive film stars for ugly behavior such as ostracizing cooperating witnesses in the House Commitee on UnAmerican Activities debacle, abandoning anti-fascism overnight when the Hitler-Stalin pact was signed with no explanation thereof(because Moscow forbade it); taking advantage of actual starry-eyed liberals caught up in the mess (James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, eg); he also does not slip as Billingsley often does into over-analyzing possible clues of bolshevik influence. He does not, for example, believe that actors and screenwriters hoodwinked ever-conservative studio owners and film producers by whistling Soviet anthems in order to ensure the Marxist dialectic was referred to even minutely in films. He definitely presents a more balanced view.

If you want more of the history of Ronald Reagan and Gene Kelly's attempts at "can't we all just get along"....which is interesting from a historical and political perspective, Billingsley covers more of that. But Radosh is more thorough in the above mentioned areas (the book is about twice as long), and is less preachy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Necessary Couterpoint 13 février 2010
Par R. Bono - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a well documented study of the period of post World War II, Hollywood history when the American left became fragmented, and true liberals became separated from their highly indoctrinated brethren. It's true that we admire and respect Hollywood actors, producers, and directors for their talent and their work, not their politics. However, the war years and McCarthy era, was a time when, both voluntarily and involuntarily, political attitudes became front and center to the national debate. This book explicates many of the harsh emotions and commitments that defined the involvement of Hollywood with that spectacle.

One of the many anecdotes here, is the story of Olivia de Havilland's speech, written by communist, Dalton Trumbo....as was Katharine Hepburn's obtuse and melodramatic, "I am a Communist" speech. Unlike Hepburn, liberal di Havilland, instead of toting Stalin's communist party line, wrote her own speech, and staked an opposite position. Stalin's atrocities were well known at the time....the Ukrainian genocide of seven million has been well covered by the media in 1933....and Stalin had made his intentions quite clear following WW II. Trumbo (and others), opposed Harry Truman's anti-Stalin initiatives....defining himself forever, in opposition to free speech within the CPUSA. It's more than a little ironic that, even today, his son...in the PBS's delusional "Trumbo"... trumpets him as an avatar of free speech. Arthur Schleshinger had also found it absurdly ironic. That Trumbo's family should ascribe to this mythology is, at least a little understandable. However, for other of today's Hollywood players to tout the same fantasy, so many years later, shows the persistence of gullibility.

This little anecdote, within the Radoshs's larger story of HUAC, is just one of many such stories within this book. We know today...from the opening of Soviet records...of the massive spying that took place concerning the Manhattan Project, out of the New York consulate. It's well to remember, that the paranoia of McCarthy...while leading to some painful results for individuals...was not completely unfounded. Actors, writers, and directors were polarized at either end of the debate, and found themselves having to make decisions, as to whether to expose the truth about their colleagues. That this was done in such an antagonistic atmosphere, does not negate the demonstrable reality that a significant number of their colleagues were, in fact, communists, or communist sympathizers.

We go to the movies to see films, and be entertained, and to learn. The stories within, do carry messages...and it's good to know that the underlying issues can be exposed by a good story. However, the potential for mass propaganda...on both the right and the left...is always there. As consumers of entertainment, we have every right to discuss, expose, and evaluate everything we see at the movies. This book is an attempt to set the historic record straight...and its lesson to me, is to do our evaluations in a more open, and less accusatory manner...but do them nonetheless. A vibrant democracy requires no less.

For those interested in a graphic visual history of Stalin, and his USSR, might want to check the DVD, The Soviet Story.

Very much worth reading. A careful and balanced view of a side of Hollywood the left does not want you to see.
