Behind the Screen: How Gays and Lesbians Shaped Hollywood, by William J. Mann
With this landmark book, Mann fills a void in the Hollywood history archives. Written in the tradition of Neal Gabler's An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood and based on hundreds of hours of interviews with survivors of this golden age, Behind the Screen is destined to become a classic of film literature. As a historian I found this book lacking the clarity and strength in sources that appear in the biographies that he has written. As a social history this lacks sufficient sources to make some of the arguments. He also uses sources that would be better used in a cultural history.

It bears remembering that straight WASP Thomas Alva Edison, the so-called inventor of the movies, initially thought they were nothing more than a Penny Arcade fad which would soon lose its novelty. Even as late as , he was adamant that the public would tolerate movies no longer than 10 minutes long despite the evidence of European historical epics, clocking in at six to 10 times that length, which the same public was flocking to see. The arts have always been a haven for those who are different — and not just sexually. This is true of theater in particular; artists tend to be of an open, exploratory disposition generally and communities of artists tend to be non-judgmental of a broad range of behavior. That the theater, decoration and fashion trades have proven havens for ages should come as no surprise, and it was from these areas that film drew its personnel initially.
The first full accouning of the role of gays and lesbians in Hollywood argues that homosexuals were in fact a protected class in the film industry who had considerable power to shape the art and business of movie-making. If your last piece of golden-era Hollywood gossip is that Greta Garbo and Cecil Beaton kissed at a rooftop party, you need to steep yourself in William J. Mann's social history of gay Hollywood, a treasure trove of fresh anecdotes and observations of a period and place in which homosexuals enjoyed tremendous freedom and influence--within certain obvious limits. In choosing subjects for his study, Mann cast his net widely, hauling in a great number of uncelebrated but essential workers in the "queer" areas of the film industry--mainly costume design and props, but also writing, directing and acting.
