The World War II Era and Jewish Hollywood

Posted November 14, 2017

This lecture will explore the World War II era in Hollywood through a study of the four films; The Life of Emile Zola (1937), Casablanca (1042), Crossfire (1947) and Gentleman’s Agreement (1947). These films, produced at the different stages of this period, each reflect the struggles of the Jews in Hollywood regarding their Jewish identity. How did they address the evils of Hitler? How did they respond to the aftermath of the War when Americans tended to be more sympathetic to the Jews?
