Operation Hollywood: How The Pentagon Shapes And Censors The Movies
Have your favorite movies been censored or meddled with by the Pentagon?
Since the 80′s, and the success of Top Gun, Hollywood has increased its
production of big budget war movies, using military bases, submarines
and aircraft carriers that the armed forces have generously made
available to the studios. In exchange, the Pentagon's experts vet
hundreds of screenplays each year.
Using lots of movie clips,
"Operation Hollywood" explores this cozy relationship between Hollywood
filmmakers and the U.S. government, and questions the wisdom of letting
the Pentagon use movies to promote the U.S. army's image.
