Money is a theme that pervades this book: money drives Hollywood. In the early days of Hollywood, money was certainly a benefit but it was not often the sole reason one went into acting or directing. Actors and directors did not make the kind of money that movie industry moguls make today. However, as the industry became more popular, the money began to flow, which was both a blessing and a curse.
