Edited by John Howard Lawson, S.T. Farquhar, a.o. (Hollywood Writers Mobilization). Precursor to The Quarterly of Film, Radio, and Television, and Film Quarterly, which is still being published. "The first issue of Hollywood Quarterly, in October 1945, marked the appearance of the most significant, successful, and regularly published journal of its kind in the United States. For its entire life, the Quarterly held to the leftist utopianism of its founders, several of whom would later be blacklisted. The journal attracted a collection of writers unmatched in North American film studies for the heterogeneity of their intellectual and practical concerns: from film, radio, and television industry workers to academics; from Sam Goldwyn, Edith Head, and Chuck Jones to Theodor Adorno and Siegfried Kracauer." (Quoted from the Univ.of Calif.Anthology).
