Dalla blacklist alla New Hollywood: i rapporti tra MPAA, CIA e Casa Bianca

This essay focuses on the relationships between the Motion Pictures Association of America and American politics, from the second half of the 1940s onwards. After the reforms by William Hays, the MPAA decided to put at its top people who had strong links with the most influential political organizations in Washington. The personal and professional careers of Eric Johnston and Jack Valenti, Hays’ two successors, show how the Hollywood film industry collaborated with the White House and its most strategic institutions, including the CIA.
