Week 3 Hollywood on Hollywood: How Movies Portray the Movie Business

Hollywood loves a good Hollywood story – even if the film exposes the industry’s cruel and unglamorous side. Join film historian Max Alvarez for this compelling multimedia lecture on how the moviemakers see themselves on screen. Among the films discussed are Sunset Blvd., Barton Fink, Trumbo, The Player, and Hail, Caesar!.
