9780674088108: The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact with Hitler

To continue doing business in Germany, Hollywood studios agreed not to make films attacking Nazis or condemning persecution of Jews. Ben Urwand reveals this collaboration and the cast of characters it drew in, ranging from Goebbels to Louis B. Mayer. At the center was Hitler himself―obsessed with movies and their power to shape public opinion.

About the Author:

Ben Urwand is a Junior Fellow of the Society of Fellows at Harvard University.

Review:

A tremendous piece of work, fully sustained, building momentum charged by thrillingly detailed storytelling, increasing suspense, and a consistent movement from outrages to atrocities, with a stunning conclusion of heroism and tragedy--and it is as well a devastating RIP to what we've been told, all down these years, about 'the genius of the system.'--Greil Marcus

Full of startling and surprising revelations, presented in exemplary fashion, without any moralizing or sensationalism. "The Collaboration" shows how Hollywood and especially the big studios went along with German demands to censor movies not only before but especially after the Nazi seizure of power.--Richard J. Evans

Urwand...presents explosive new evidence about the shocking extent of the partnership between the Nazis and major Hollywood producers...[A] riveting book...As you turn its pages you realize with dismay that collaboration is the only fitting word for the relationship between Hitler and Hollywood in the 1930s. Using new archival discoveries, Urwand alleges that some of the Hollywood studio heads, nearly all of whom were Jewish, cast their lot with Hitler almost from the moment he took power, and that they did so eagerly--not reluctantly. What they wanted was access to German audiences. What Hitler wanted was the ability to shape the content of Hollywood movies--and he got it...What is shocking and new about Urwand's account is its blow-by-blow description of Hollywood executives tailoring their product to meet the demands of the Nazi regime.--David Mikics"Tablet Magazine" (06/10/2013)

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.--Jennifer Schuessler"New York Times" (06/25/2013)

Urwand's book details in sometimes shocking fashion how the Hollywood film industry, including studios run by legendary Jewish film moguls such as Louis B Mayer, were willing to pre-screen their films for Nazi officials and remove content they found objectionable.
--Andy Goldberg"Military.com" (08/04/2013)

Urwand is tearing down the popular impression that the 1930s Hollywood community stood united in efforts to combat the Nazi regime. Quite the contrary, says Urwand, whose research reveals a shocking level of collaboration (or "Zusammenarbeit, "i.e. 'working together') between the German government and Tinseltown's studios--many of which were famously headed by Jews..."The Collaboration "depicts a studio system in which films were submitted for approval to aggressive German propaganda officials, who demanded cuts and changes to material deemed 'detrimental to German prestige'--not only to film versions created for the German market, but for the U.S. and countries around the world.
--Lesley M. M. Blume"Vanity Fair online" (08/22/2013)

Urwand's investigation of this dark chapter in the history of the American film industry is as intriguing as it is compellingly told.
--Theis Duelund"Los Angeles Magazine" (09/10/2013)

[A] provocative book.
--Rosemary Neill"The Australian" (09/28/2013)

Urwand's book about how Hollywood conducted business with and within Germany after Hitler's ascent to power is a fascinating examination of capitalist amorality in the face of evil. Urwand does a good job of cataloging the ways Hollywood studios--largely headed by immigrant Jewish entrepreneurs--took measures to placate the Nazis so they could continue to show films in Germany throughout the 1930s, until the Nazi invasion of Poland...Urwand has uncovered a very interesting, heretofore unknown, true Hollywood story.
--Philip Martin"Arkansas Democrat-Gazette" (09/29/2013)

This eminently accessible, often riveting account of a little-understood chapter in American cinema history should appeal to a wide general readership.--Roy Liebman"Library Journal" (10/15/2013)
