From the Archives: Film Critic Neal Gabler on "How the Jews Invented Hollywood."

Film critic Neal Gabler is the author of the book, "An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood," which examined how a group of Jewish European emigrees -- who became Hollywood's movie moguls -- created the screen's idea of the American Dream, and how America adopted that dream. There's a new documentary based on the book, "Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies and the American Dream." On the A&E cable network, Sunday at 8pm. (REBROADCAST from 10/11/88)
