Abstract:

"After World War II, as Hollywood faced a changing industrial landscape, movie studios shifted some production activities overseas, where they capitalized on frozen foreign earnings, cheap labor, and striking locations. Hollywood unions called the phenomenon "runaway" production to underscore the dispersal of employment opportunities. Examining the late 1940s to early 1960s, Runaway Hollywood details these changes, showing how film companies exported production around the world and the effect of this move on visual style. It uses an array of historical materials to trace the industry's creation of a more global production operation that intermixed craft practices and aesthetic ideas from Hollywood and abroad to produce movies with a greater global scope"--Provided by publisher.
