Virtual Book Talk - Hollywood Hates Hitler with Chris Yogerst

In September 1941, a handful of isolationist senators set out to tarnish Hollywood for warmongering, introducing a resolution aimed to limit both radio and film that "extensively used for propaganda purposes designed to influence the public mind in the direction of participation in the European War.” The immigrant moguls in Hollywood were acutely aware of the conditions in Europe. After Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass), the gloves came off and a number of studios released films later targeted by the Senate. Join author of Hollywood Hates Hitler! Jew-Baiting, Anti-Nazism, and the Senate Investigation into Warmongering in Motion Pictures, Chris Yogerst, as he examines the years leading up to and through the Senate Investigation into Motion Picture War Propaganda, detailing the isolationist senators’ relationship with the America First movement.
