Hollywood Holidays: 1946 Documentary Short

Imagine trying to make such a film today! The attempt to capture an area with a broad overview actually strikes me as an amusingly naive effort – except for the film’s witless touch of that casual Hollywood racism in part 2. Yes, come to Hollywood! Land of eternal sunshine and myth making. But whites only please!

The film eventually tries to justify its title with a few shots of Christmas decorations and clubs where New Years could be properly celebrated.
