Hollywood's Dark Past

Peter Lorre
I recently watched two documentaries about the bad old days of Hollywood. The first is Girl 27 (2007), the story of a young woman raped at a 1937 MGM salesmen convention, the cover-up, and the "casting couch" ethos of "Golden Age" Hollywood. The second is Trumbo (2007), the story of blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo, told through interviews and letters. I realize these are two years old, but you can watch them now on your computer, if you have Netflix and a fast connection.

Enjoy. Learn. Remember.
