The Film Girl, Interrupted: Portrayal of Truth in Hollywood Films - The Film Girl, Interrupted: Portrayal of Truth in Hollywood Films Most people are likely to relate Hollywood with money. If a person lives in the Hollywood area, people assume she or he is probably rich. If she or he is a Hollywood movie star, the person probably makes a lot of money. Therefore, to follow that line of thought, when Hollywood producers make a movie, they make it just for money. And some filmmakers do seem to make films only for the money the movies will earn. The action movie "Die Hard", the fantasy movie "Star Wars", and the adventure movie "Jurassic Park" are examples of exciting movies that were made just for the money by satisfying the audiences' appetite for escapism....   [tags: Hollywood Film Girl Interrupted] 1679 words
