RARA-AVIS: Lassie's social assumptions and other stuff

Hey Al,

how do you know what kind of social assumptions lie in the heart of COME BACK, LASSIE? They may very well be very intriguing, challenging or even Leftist. It's not really a matter of a genre.

(I haven't read either LASSIE or YOU PLAY THE BLACK, so can't really say.)

And I do think that you can see Michael Collins's social assumptions in his Nick Carters and Mike Shaynes.

And Rob,

yes, there were many Leftist or even outright Marxists working in Hollywood penning dozens of B movies in the thirties and fourties. I have a book on this
(it's a Finnish book that should be translated into English immediately) and can check names for you, but I'd say it's an off-list thing.
