Book outs Hollywood as Nazi sympathizers: editing scripts, movies and removing credits for Jews

A shocking new article reveals the backstory of Nazi support in America, particularly in Hollywood.

The Collaboration hollywood with Hitler“In devastating detail, an excerpt from a controversial new book reveals how the big studios, desperate to protect German business, let Nazis censor scripts, remove credits from Jews, get movies stopped and even force one MGM executive to divorce his Jewish wife.” – begins the article This story first appeared in the Aug. 9 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Noting a ton of archival documents in the U.S. and Germany, a new book The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler (Harvard University Press, goes on sale September. 9).

The word “Collaboration” is the key as communications and organized efforts appeared to be the norm between America’s Hollywood and Germany.

THR writes The Nazis threatened to exclude American movies — more than 250 played in Germany after Hitler took power in 1933 — unless the studios cooperated.

Money appeared to a bigger motivator than most knew, believed or care to admit. Hollywood was selling out America, perpetuating Nazi propaganda to make a dime.

Beginning with wholesale changes made to Universal’s 1930 release All Quiet on the Western Front, Hollywood regularly ran scripts and finished movies by German officials for approval. When they objected to scenes or dialogue they thought made Germany look bad, criticized the Nazis or dwelled on the mistreatment of Jews, the studios would accommodate them…”
