Chapter 9

I found it very interesting how by the end of the war, southern california had become the center of filmmaking and "hollywood soon came to symbolize both the glamour and irresponsibility of a dream-like, alien world. Since 1910 edison trust as well as independents had been using southern california as a production site. Los Angeles was very big and prductive at this time as well. I found it interesting how Los Angeles enabled the new movie moguls, producers, and stars to build a new community around the ideals of leisure and consumption that they were projecting on the screen.
