Hollywood and the Rise of Physical Culture
This study examines the relationship between cinema and physical culture (i.e. activities such as dieting and muscle-building). Hollywood's long-standing prominence on the world state makes it an ideal place to begin such an examination. The evidence that emerges from a case study of Hollywood's impact on the American reducing craze of the 1920s, a physical culture fad whose chief focus was on shedding fat, will form the basis for speculation regarding the interrelationship of Hollywood and physical culture.
