Hollywood's Star System
Hollywood's Star System & How it Works
with Brian Rose
Hollywood has relied on star power as the most reliable way to draw an audience.
Brian Rose's lecture looks at the history of movie stardom - how film actors weren't
even identified by name, how Mary Pickford became "America's Sweetheart," and how the Hollywood
studios manufactured stars like Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney and Lana Turner during its Golden Age.
