Hollywood’s Dirty Little Military Secret

Not much is spoken about the cozy relationship between Hollywood and the American military. “All a producer needs do for assistance, it seems, is submit five copies of his script to the Pentagon for approval, make whatever script changes the Pentagon suggests, film the script exactly as approved by the Pentagon and preview the finished product for Pentagon officials before it’s shown to its broader audience. And many do this gladly. It is Hollywood’s dirtiest little secret, and the long-term effect on generations of young Americans is an unknown. How many of those killed in Iraq died because they joined up after they saw what was presented in a film?”
