Summary
A discussion of the role of the military in the media age. Hollywood and the military have cooperated in the movie-making business for over 90 years. The Pentagon uses the movies as part of a larger public relations effort aimed at selling the armed forces to the American public. Is it appropriate for the military to rewrite film scripts in exchange for its cooperation? What does it cost the taxpayer? And should the military be involved in the entertainment business at all? Participants include Philip Strub, Hollywood Liaison, DOD and Lawrence Suid, film historian. With illustrative film clips
