Long associated with glamour, fantasy, and scandal, Hollywood's reputation is to a large degree related to its primary industry, filmmaking. This unit approaches Hollywood cinema as industry, style, and global vernacular. It considers the historical development of the film industry in the United States, its early and on-going forms of international influence, and Hollywood's more contemporary transformations. The unit introduces students to key conceptual terms and historical formations, including the Hollywood classical style, the studio system, the star system, the Production Code, and the blockbuster.
