As you watch the clips, think about the following:
Blatant Jewish imagery in Hollywood films stopped in the 1930's for the following reasons:
The movie industry was becoming highly successful, because most Americans needed "an escape" from the Depression era politics and atmosphere. The studio heads, who were all immigrant Jews, did not think Jewish stereotypes would play well in the American Heartland. Additionally, the Jewish immigrants who ran the Hollywood studios did not want to call attention to their own Jewishness, because there was an undercurrent of Antisemitism in American society. They wanted their businesses to succeed. And finally, with the rise of Hitler in Europe, the studio heads did not want to focus on Jews or Jewish issues, lest isolationist Americans think they were being pushed to fight Nazism.
That being said,what makes these clips "Jewish"?
Why do you think the Marx Brothers were so popular with American audiences of the 1930's and 1940's?
