Tim Stanley (The Daily Telegraph/UCL-IA Fellow) - Until the early 1960s, Hollywood was institutionally somewhat conservative: the Republican-leaning studio chiefs tightly controlled their stars’ politics. But in the late 1960s something happened to turn the movie-makers into congenital liberals. Paul Newman stumped for Eugene McCarthy, The Man From UNCLE went for Bobby Kennedy and Barbra Streisand sang her heart out for George McGovern. In this paper, Tim Stanley looks at the leftward turn in Hollywood during the Nixon presidency and examines how it laid roots that still show today.
