From the Inside Flap
Catherine Jurca has taken a nearly forgotten event in the history of Hollywood and demonstrated how much it can tell us about the state of the motion picture industry and its frailties, as well as its relationship with its audience, at a critical moment in its development. She deftly challenges claims about the centrality of Hollywood to American culture in the 1930s, questions its relationship with the public, and examines the ways in which the industry’s perceptions of that public shaped how it made and marketed movies. This is both excellent scholarship and marvelous storytelling.”Richard Maltby, author of Hollywood Cinema.
