Abstract

In “The Influence of Hollywood,” Alexandrowicz engages in a brief overview of both the history of gays and lesbians in American mainstream cinema and the representation of queer people on screen. He pays particular attention to the messages that Hollywood’s notorious homophobia—largely intact to this day—sends to young actors who aspire to find employment in professional film and television.
