Summary: Now in its third edition, Heres Looking at You: Hollywood, Film and Politics examines the tangled relationship between politics and Hollywood, which manifests itself in celebrity involvement in political campaigns and elections, and in the overt and covert political messages conveyed by Hollywood films.

e strictly commercial ventures, hundreds of moviesranging from Birth of a Nation to Capitalismdo indeed contain political messages.
