Abstract

In Secrecy’s Shadow: The OSS and CIA in Hollywood Cinema, 1941-1979 provides an extensive historical account of the birth and development of the relationship between Hollywood and US intelligence, in particular the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Author Simon Willmetts brings together historical analysis, close readings and archival research to offer a comprehensive, nuanced and insightful picture of the CIA both in and on film from the 1940s to the 1970s, writes Tricia Jenkins.
