J. Edgar Hoover Goes to the Movies
The FBI and the Origins of Hollywood's Cold War
John Sbardellati
In J. Edgar Hoover Goes to the Movies, John Sbardellati examines Hollywood's key role as a cultural, political, and ideological battleground of the early Cold War, providing a new consideration of Hollywood's history and the post–World War II Red Scare.


"Sbardellati draws upon FBI documents to detail how J. Edgar Hoover, beginning in 1942, directed his agents to undertake a massive, secret review of the Hollywood film industry. . . . Sbardellati's thorough research on Hoover’s early investigations of Hollywood makes this a great choice for readers interested in 20th-century American cultural history."—Library Journal
