STARS IN THE DARKS: Cinema's Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood

“First class” ­– Variety

More than 800 film professionals escaped to Hollywood in the years between 1933 and 1939. Not every exile found success in Hollywood; most never regained the fame they had known in Europe, and many had to seek work outside the industry. By the 1950s, though, the émigré’s output reflected a degree of professional integration in Hollywood perhaps unimagined when they had all dreamt of California as a destination. Karen Thomas tells their story in this film. (U.S., 2009, 90m, video)
