    schema:description "Cripps explores the movie-going experience; the struggle for social control over the movies through censorship; the impact of sound on the style and content of films; alternatives to Hollywood's oligopoly, including "race" films and documentaries; the paradoxical predictability and subversive creativity of genre pictures; and Hollywood's self-proclaimed "shining moment" during World War II. He concludes with a discussion of the collapse of the studio system after the war, due in equal parts to suburbanization, the emergence of television, and government antitrust action."@en ;
