Hollywood’s 100th birthday

CMCI Lecturer Dr. Harvey G. Cohen guested this morning on the BBC World Service programme World Update, and commented on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the first film to be filmed in Hollywood (D. W. Griffith’s In Old California, in case you’re wondering). He explained why Los Angeles became a center of film production in the 1910s, and whether Hollywood can continue to be significant in the 21st century.

World Update is broadcast around the world to hundreds of radio stations. The audio link to the broadcast featuring Cohen can be heard just for today at this link. His segment starts at the 45.10 mark.
