About the Book

Historically, Hollywood has stereotyped various groups. Italians were Mafioso. Irish were cops, priests, or soldiers. Blacks were slow-witted, dangerous, and drugged out. Hispanics were crooks and cruel. Asians were usually sly and untrustworthy or portrayed as cartoon-like characters.

What about Jews? In movies that are not about Jews, but where there is a Jewish character in the plot, Jews have been depicted as greedy, cowardly, and weak, and only preferring non-Jews as partners in marriage.

The twenty movies in this book, spanning three-quarters of a century (1931-2005), uncovers it all—Jewish stereotypes hidden in plain sight.
