Mr. Robb talked about his book, Operation Hollywood: How the Pentagon Shapes and Censors the Movies, published by Prometheus Books. In the book, Mr. Robb examines the relationship between Hollywood and the Pentagon. He notes that many films are made with help, often in the form of equipment or technical advice, from the military. He also observes that the Pentagon is far more willing to help make movies that portray the military in a positive light, even sometimes demanding that scripts be altered or scenes deleted in exchange for cooperation. During this event, Mr. Robb also presented several of his source documents and responded to questions from the audience. close
