Hollywood left and right : how movie stars shaped American politics / by Ross, Steven Joseph.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Introduction: movie stars and politics -- The first political movie star: Charlie Chaplin -- The man who brought Hollywood into the Republican Party: Louis B. Mayer -- Little Caesar and the HUAC mob: Edward G. Robinson -- Hollywood and the conservative revolution: George Murphy and Ronald Reagan -- Politics in black and white: Harry Belafonte -- Movement leader, grassroots builder: Jane Fonda -- Moses and the red tide: Charlton Heston -- President Bulworth, or, will Mr. Beatty go to Washington?: Warren Beatty -- Governor Arnold and the age of celebrity politics: Arnold Schwarzenegger -- Epilogue.From the publisher. In Hollywood Left and Right, Steven J. Ross tells a story that has escaped public attention: the emergence of Hollywood as a vital center of political life and the important role that movie stars have played in shaping the course of American politics. Ever since the film industry relocated to Hollywood early in the twentieth century, it has had an outsized influence on American politics. Through compelling larger-than-life figures in American cinema -- Charlie Chaplin, Louis B. Mayer, Edward G. Robinson, George Murphy, Ronald Reagan, Harry Belafonte, Jane Fonda, Charlton Heston, Warren Beatty, and Arnold Schwarzenegger -- Hollywood Left and Right reveals how the film industry's engagement in politics has been longer, deeper, and more varied than most people would imagine. As shown in alternating chapters, the Left and the Right each gained ascendancy in Tinseltown at different times. From Chaplin, whose movies almost always displayed his leftist convictions, to Schwarzenegger's nearly seamless transition from action blockbusters to the California governor's mansion, Steven J. Ross traces the intersection of Hollywood and political activism from the early twentieth century to the present. Hollywood Left and Right challenges the commonly held belief that Hollywood has always been a bastion of liberalism. The real story, as Ross shows in this passionate and entertaining work, is far more complicated. First, Hollywood has a longer history of conservatism than liberalism. Second, and most surprising, while the Hollywood Left was usually more vocal and visible, the Right had a greater impact on American political life, capturing a senate seat (Murphy), a governorship (Schwarzenegger), and the ultimate achievement, the Presidency (Reagan).

But the young Alabaman with an IQ of 75 is a thoroughly decent man, who manages to become involved in every major event in American history. And he survives them all with only honesty and niceness as his shields. Thanks to his where-there's-a-will-there's-a-way Mama, Forrest believes in himself. This sees him through being taunted by bullies, playing college football, the army, a business, and -- amazingly -- many of the touchstone events of the Sixties and Seventies: civil rights battles, the Vietnam War, anti-war protests, opening relations with China. The story's extraordinary conceit is that this man, equal parts Candide and Winnie-the-Pooh, was there whenever something big happened to America in those years, meeting Presidents and pop stars, influencing thinkers and trends, his story being our story as a nation.Disc 2 special features: Through the eyes of Forrest Gump [featurette] (30 min.); Screen tests [featurettes] (8 min.); Building the world of Gump: Production design [featurette] (7 min); Seeing is believing: The visual effects of Forrest Gump [featurette] (37 min.); Through the ears of Forrest Gump: Sound design [featurette] (14 min.); The magic of makeup [featurette] (8 min.); Trailers (5 min.); photo gallery [slide show].Winner, 1995 Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects: Ken Ralston, George Murphy, Stephen Rosenbaum, andAllen Hall; Best Film Editing: Arthur Schmidt; Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium: Eric Roth; Best Actor in a Leading Role: Tom Hanks; Best Picture: Wendy Finerman, Steve Starkey, and Steve Tisch; and Best Director: Robert Zemeckis.
