AMC Channel Tonight at 10EST - Rated R: Republicans in Hollywood
American Movie Classics ^ | 09/14/04

Posted on 09/14/2004 2:49:17 PM PDT by Zaxis

THE AMC PROJECT: RATED R: REPUBLICANS IN HOLLYWOOD Deserved or not, Hollywood has a left-wing reputation. But could Hollywood be more conservative than we think? This is the question award-winning documentary filmmaker and former Democratic speechwriter Jesse Moss tries to answer in this special AMC Project. He examines recent phenomena, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger's election to California's highest office, Mel Gibson's unapologetically Christian hit The Passion of The Christ, and the debates over "patriotism" spawned by the war in Iraq. Tune in and find out if Hollywood is primed for a right-wing resurgence. Tuesday, September 14 at 10PM ET/PT.

I met Jesse Moss when he was screening Speedo around the country. He's about as fair as anyone in documentary filmmaking.

In fact, at the screening of Speedo, he mentioned he was working on a politcal film several times and there was no way you could guess which side of the aisle he would fall on.

I'll be sure to watch.

Don't forget, 5 or 6 conservatives in Hollywood constitutes a VRWC...

Positive review from Adam Buckman, The NY Post’s (conservative) television reviewer:

Sounds like someone on the Hollywood inside is trying to trick us into believing that Hollywood is NOT full of flaming, red-diaper-baby Communists. LOL Even though we all know that it's been a bastion of Reds since the damned 1930's.

Sorry, I ain't buying it.

I think it was well-known that John Wayne was a Republican. I look forward to seeing something on that.

I'm pleasantly surprised to find that Patricia Heaton and Vincent Gallo are both on the 'right' side. ;)

This story was in the Tempo Section of the Chicago Tribune today... Best quote: Drew Carey [paraphrase - too lazy to look up] "I'm Libertarian - a Conservative who still likes to get high"... LMAO

Yes (Emilio Estevez's only watchable movie) and I also read a review of Gary Willis biography in which it was implied that Marion Morrison was close to some "Hollywood fairies" when he was trying to break into the biz.

Actually, he had the same taste in women as Clemenza.

I see this will re-air at 3:00 A.M. Eastern Time. Trying to decide if I want to stay up for it. Should I?

Decent job - Everybody got their two or three minutes in. Ben Stein was the only one who got it right about Arnold. He's no conservative. He signed the bill banning the .50 caliber BMG rifle today! Could he have got a Kennedy gene through osmosis - like from his wife ?

According to one of those interviewed, a Republican producer, that as more and more MBA's are getting jobs in Hollywood, who are politically conservative and fed up with the PC culture of their college experiences, they are slowly changing the place. He said that a vote for President held with the under 35 Hollywood crowd would elect a Republican.

It's pretty hard not to close to gays in Hollywood. There are just too many around you. Would the author have preferred he killed them instead?

Besides, Marion Morrison, better known as John Wayne, broke into the biz via help of his college football coach at USC, Howard Jones. He got his first break from John Ford when he was a lowly prop man.

I think what you described in post #21, SoCal Pubbie, was the soundbite of the whole documentary.

If he was, he had a lot of kids. Didn't he marry again later in life and sire a couple more?
