Abstract

Underlying William Randolph Hearst’s lambasting of Soviet films on American screens is an unspoken liaison between Hearst and another manifesto author armed with the agenda to fill American screens with Hollywood product: the source Hearst cites for his statistics, the Motion Picture Herald (1931–1972), was published by Martin Quigley, one of the key architects of the Motion Picture Production Code. Reading this screed, Orson Welles’s pastiche of Hearst’s bombastic writing style in Citizen Kane (1941) seems not far from the truth.
