By Floyd Conner
L'histoire d'Hollywood est faite de choses étranges, bizarres ou carrément incroyables. Les soixante-dix chapitres de ce livre décrivent avec de nombreux détails aussi bien les pires movies que les plus grands classiques, les bombes sexuelles ou les physiques les plus pitoyables, les mystères de ce microcosme et les coups de pub géniaux.
On y apprend combien parfois furent difficiles les débuts de ceux qui sont devenus les plus grandes stars, ceux qui refusèrent les rôles qui les auraient propulsés au firmament ou sont allés se perdre dans des navets innommables. Il y a des scandales, des caprices (de stars bien sûr !) et des carrières exemplaires, des charlatans et de vrais génies, des égoïstes et des gens qui ont su donner plus que leur chemise.

When a socially important issue taken up at the start of a work fades away and is reduced to a matter of production technique, that is, a question of whether or not a new technical innovation is made, or whether or not a production plan is carried out, it is entirely due to the fact that the theme has not been treated politically, in terms of human relationships. If the subject matter is to be treated meaningfully, the development of events and the conclusions to which they lead should be imbued 38 with political significance.
This means that literary questions must be dealt with on the basis of people's social relationships and in such a way as to assume political significance. Dealing with subjects from the point of view of their political significance is the major requirement for improving the ideological quality of literary works. The more sharply you depict all the artistic elements from a political angle, in particular the characters and their lives, the events and conflicts, which are subordinated to the overall expression of your theme, the higher will be the ideological quality of your work.
36 When the subject of a work has been treated correctly, it can do a great deal to impart a correct understanding of the urgent problems arising in life and to rouse people to struggle to solve these problems. If the subject is to assume political importance through its representation in the work, it must be treated in accordance with Party policy. Our Party's policy gives correct answers in concrete terms to all important social problems which arise in real life. By means of its scientific guiding ideology and theory, our Party correctly clarifies problems in every area of life, indicating the specific approaches and methods required in order to advance the revolution and construction.
