(p.211) Conclusion
Reforming Hollywood

William D. Romanowski

Oxford University Press

The Conclusion highlights the extent to which the tension between the industry’s pursuit of profits and the church’s long-standing concern with civil liberties and the public welfare was at the forefront of the struggle that Protestants waged over the movies. The events traced in this narrative can be interpreted as part of a struggle to establish an autonomous institutional status for motion pictures, a progression that, like theater and the other arts, involved church, government, legal, and other institutions. It also points out that the media landscape has changed considerably in recent decades and there are many issues that will have to be addressed in an age of high-tech communication.
