to my previous post  addition   seem to have mislaid Neil Gabler's book   HOW
THE JEWS INVENTED HOLLYWOOD   does anyone know where Gabler resides?  Also,
can anyone  since I am under a deadline  reprise any remarks he may have made
about the actual presence of Jews as labelled characters  important or
otherwise   prior to the Forties. My sense is that Mayer and company projected
a quotidian middle class image for their public which didnt contain ethnics
except perhaps as stereotypes  and certainly few if any Jews as main
characters  labelled as such  of whatever professior  prior to the Forties
with the notable exception of THE JAZZ SINGER   anybody care to agree
disagree   expand etc  again many thanks hr greenberg md endit
