This book offers insight into and analysis of European efforts to overcome the U.S. film industry's preeminence. It focuses particularly on Britain, Hollywood's largest overseas market of the interwar years; France, a nation with an alternative vision of cinema; and Belgium, which was entrusted by the Vatican with coordination of the international movement against depravity in films. In contributing to the understanding of American popular culture at home and abroad, this study demonstrates. Hollywood's role in orchestrating the American Century."--BOOK JACKET." ;
