In the 1930s and 40s the great Hollywood studios were ruled by a small group of men who had complete control over which films got made and what stars got to appear in those films. These moguls rule was absolute and together they had a feeling of “absolute immortality.” They were the real gods of Hollywood. But after they died, the era of the classic Hollywood studio also came to an end and the studios lost their individual identities. Tune in tonight for a lively conversation about classic Hollywood with WHEELER WINSTON DIXON, the James Ryan Endowed Professor of Film Studies at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. His new book is DEATH OF THE MOGULS: THE END OF CLASSICAL HOLLYWOOD.
