9780674724747: The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact With Hitler

To continue doing business in Germany after Hitler's ascent to power, Hollywood studios agreed not to make films that attacked the Nazis or condemned Germany's persecution of Jews. Ben Urwand reveals this bargain for the first time--a "collaboration" "(Zusammenarbeit)" that drew in a cast of characters ranging from notorious German political leaders such as Goebbels to Hollywood icons such as Louis B. Mayer. At the center of Urwand's story is Hitler himself, who was obsessed with movies and recognized their power to shape public opinion. In December 1930, his Party rioted against the Berlin screening of "All Quiet on the Western Front," which led to a chain of unfortunate events and decisions. Fearful of losing access to the German market, all of the Hollywood studios started making concessions to the German government, and when Hitler came to power in January 1933, the studios--many of which were headed by Jews--began dealing with his representatives directly. Urwand shows that the arrangement remained in place through the 1930s, as Hollywood studios met regularly with the German consul in Los Angeles and changed or canceled movies according to his wishes. Paramount and Fox invested profits made from the German market in German newsreels, while MGM financed the production of German armaments. Painstakingly marshaling previously unexamined archival evidence, "The Collaboration" raises the curtain on a hidden episode in Hollywood--and American--history.

Descrizione libro Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England, 2013. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. 336 pages. Softcover. New book. HOLOCAUST. To continue doing business in Germany after Hitler's ascent to power, Hollywood studios agreed not to make films that attacked the Nazis or condemned Germany's persecution of Jews. Ben Urwand reveals this bargain for the first timeÑa "collaboration" (Zusammenarbeit) that drew in a cast of characters ranging from notorious German political leaders such as Goebbels to Hollywood icons such as Louis B. Mayer. At the center of Urwand's story is Hitler himself, who was obsessed with movies and recognized their power to shape public opinion. In December 1930, his Party rioted against the Berlin screening of All Quiet on the Western Front, which led to a chain of unfortunate events and decisions. Fearful of losing access to the German market, all of the Hollywood studios started making concessions to the German government, and when Hitler came to power in January 1933, the studiosÑmany of which were headed by JewsÑbegan dealing with his representatives directly. Urwand shows that the arrangement remained in place through the 1930s, as Hollywood studios met regularly with the German consul in Los Angeles and changed or canceled movies according to his wishes. Paramount and Fox invested profits made from the German market in German newsreels, while MGM financed the production of German armaments. Painstakingly marshaling previously unexamined archival evidence, The Collaboration raises the curtain on a hidden episode in HollywoodÑand AmericanÑhistory. Ben Urwand is a Junior Fellow of the Society of Fellows at Harvard University. "Urwand draws on a wealth of previously uncited documents to argue that Hollywood studios, in an effort to protect the German market for their movies, not only acquiesced to Nazi censorship but also actively and enthusiastically cooperated with that regime's global propaganda effort."ÑJennifer Schuessler, The New York Times "[An] eye-opening study of Hollywood and the Nazi eliteÉ The Collaboration unfolds a story that rather knocks the shine off the golden age of cinemaÉ Urwand has done some energetic digging in the archives, quoting letters, memos and newspaper reports to uncover a shameful policy of compromise and kowtowing on the part of the studio bosses. And what lends the story its peculiar irony is that those bosses who did their utmost to appease the crazed ideology of Nazism were by and large Jews themselves."ÑAnthony Quinn, The Guardian "UrwandÉsheds new light on the way the studio bosses responded to Nazi pressure, from 1933, when Hitler assumed power, to 1941, when the United States entered the warÉ Drawing on American and German archival material, the author shows that Hollywood began working with the Nazis in 1933. The collaboration was not passive, but voluntary: part of a strategy necessary in order for the studios to maintain their market in GermanyÑwhich had more movie theaters than any other country in EuropeÉ Urwand describes how the Nazis tried to shape the very content of American filmsÑand often succeeded."ÑSamuel Blumenfeld, Le Monde "Urwand's investigation of this dark chapter in the history of the American film industry is as intriguing as it is compellingly told."ÑTheis Duelund, Los Angeles magazine "Hard-hittingÉ Urwand has dug deepÉand come up with some genuine revelationsÉ The story is quite dramatic, and shameful."ÑPhilip Kemp, Times Higher Education "Urwand's book uncovers important material about the relationship between the American film industry and the Nazi regimeÉ Readers may or may not agree with Urwand's conclusion about the perils of Jewish self-denial. But in highlighting it, he provides a useful reminder that scholarship on the Nazi era continues to serve as a mirror in which Jews view themselves."ÑGavriel Rosemfeld, Forward "UrwandÉpresents explosive new evidence about the shocking extent of the partnership between the Nazis and major Hollywood producersÉ [A] riveting bookÉ As you turn its pages you realize with. book.
