Description

An investigation of Hollywood's treatment of American politics, politicians and political institutions. The author explores the influence - through creative, ideological and financial means - that Hollywood has on politics, and vice-versa. Key questions of agenda setting are addressed, as are the value-oriented frames of reference that Hollywood has helped shape in educating and directing the American public about politics and democracy. The book focuses on mainstream films - including "The American President", "Washington-Merry-Go-Round", "Mr Smith Goes to Washington", "Wag the Dog", "Primary Colors", "The Manchurian Candidate", "Dr Strangelove", "JFK", "Nixon" and "Bulworth".show more
