Uh, sorry if this is impolite, but really, isn't the whole catalog of Hollywood (~92%) "the Jewish experience" writ large? At least where Jewish-American fantasies are concerned (Superman, Spiderman, etc.)...indeed, is there anything cultural in this country that doesn't involved Jews and, by extension, their backgrounds??
Cassidy:It's true that most Hollywood producers were Jewish, but they did not make films for the most part about their experiences. They might have made fantasy films, or fantasies about YOUR experiences, but they did not often make films about Jewish experiences. It was Darryl Zanuck, a non-Jewish producer, who made most of the important films about Jewish experiences. I think that your e-mail was impolite and uneducated, and I'm wondering why you even read this review, if you did at all.
