Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Hosted by Jackie Cooper, each episode of Hollywood Chronicles takes a lighthearted look at an aspect of American cinema. From the famous to the obscure, from scandal to triumph, no significant moment is missed. This episode examines the history of the cinema during one of the darkest episodes of American history. Escapism was the order of the day. Gangster films and cartoons sated the public's desire to be entertained.
