During my 23 years in Hollywood, from time to time, I conducted research and wrote essays about what was really going on in the Hollywood-based US film industry. Those essays are collected here for your information and enjoyment. One of the prevalent and ongoing issues in Hollywood which flairs up as a controversy periodically is the lack of diversity at the top. Very few have had the courage to actually identify the problem in a complete and truthful manner. You will find that the essays set out here address that most important issue in a direct and honest way, letting the chips fall where they may.
