"Hollywood - Ep 7 : Autocrats"

"DeMille realized early that the costumes worn by players in his films could do more than project the personality of the character being portrayed. They could reach into the marketplace.

For the first time, high fashion was as conscious of Hollywood as it was of Paris."

"Hollywood - Ep 4 : Hollywood goes to War"

“After the onset of World War I, Hollywood begins turning out movies such as Intolerance and Civilization to help promote peace.
