Historian Steven Ross documents the rise between 1907 and 1930 of a working-class film movement that challenged the dominant political ideas of the day. Ross shows how the emerging Hollywood studio system, pressured by censors and Wall Street, countered with lavish productions that shifted popular attention away from the problems of the workplace and toward the pleasures of the new consumer society. 38 photos.
