Made in Hollywood (The Paris Review)


In a blog post in The Paris Review, Noah Isenberg celebrates the centennial of the birth of Budd Schulberg ’36 by writing about the famed author and screenwriter and a Dartmouth exhibition, currently on view at Rauner Special Collections Library, called “Budd Schulberg and the Scripting of Social Change.”

“Early last month,” writes Isenberg, “I attended a two-day celebration of his centennial in Hanover, New Hampshire, at Dartmouth College, from which Schulberg graduated in 1936 and whose Rauner Special Collections Library holds his papers. The event began with the unveiling of a library exhibition—‘Budd Schulberg and the Scripting of Social Change,’ which runs through the end of next month—charting the writer’s numerous engagements with political events that spanned much of the twentieth century. As editor of The Dartmouth, the college’s daily paper, in 1935, he covered a quarry workers’ strike in Proctor, Vermont, anticipating the preproduction research he would undertake on the mafia infiltration of the dockworkers’ union for On the Waterfront.”
