Movie Magazine Article Archive

Hollywood movies have always been a reflection of public sentiment about current affairs. By examining which movies were produced--and which became hits or flops--today's researchers can gain insight into yesterday's events. For example, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, a number of movies were made in which war was central to the plot, like Hell's Angels, Sergeant York, and Memphis Belle. During World War II, such movies were able to unite Americans.
