Hollywood on the Potomac Available Now

Mr. Mike Canning's book, Hollywood on the Potomac, is available on Amazon. Mr. Canning is a Public Diplomacy Council member and long-time mentor in the Council’s Davis Public Diplomacy Fellowship program.

Hollywood on the Potomac is the first publication to offer a comprehensive look at the intersection of the capital city and the movies--how Washington, DC has been portrayed in American feature films. In examining closely almost 60 motion pictures of the Sound Era (from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington to J.Edgar), Mr. Canning reveals how Washington has been treated as either subject, setting, or background.
