Description - Exiles in Hollywood by David Wallace

World War II saw the greatest ever flight of cultural and intellectual talent from Europe. This mass escape from the Nazi regime saw legends such as Greta Garbo and Igor Stravinsky leave their homelands and settle in America. Their presence - in Hollywood especially - enabled the evolution of film noir, and changed movie-making forever. In "Exiles in Hollywood", David Wallace profiles many of the refugees, including the filmmakers, Billy Wilder and Alfred Hitchcock, writers like Thomas Mann, and actors such as Garbo and Charles Laughton. The result is a rich, page-turning look at an era, its triumphs and tragedies, its gossip and hidden facts, and its colourful personalities.
