Annotation

Examines the impact of the Spanish struggle on leftist documentary film culture, resulting in more commercially conventional forms of cinema such as The Spanish Earth (1937). Explores the political reasons behind the film’s failure to garner domestic mass-distribution despite favorable box office receipts, namely a tightly controlled Hollywood fearful of protest. Mentions in passing Hemingway’s connection to the film’s director, Joris Ivens.
