Fidler provided an overview of his life in Hollywood for the past twenty-two years. Beginning as an actor, he transitioned to a press agent, and eventually became a columnist and radio personality where he worked for the past seven years. Fidler’s column, “Jimmie Fidler in Hollywood,” was syndicated across approximately 140 papers. His radio show aired at 6:15pm on Friday nights. Fidler commanded a team of two dozen reporters that helped gather news and review films. Fidler and his team were regularly invited onto studio lots for preview screenings and celebrity interviews. Much of Fidler’s recent coverage had been critical of Hollywood films and their crusade against fascism, something that did not surprise anyone familiar with Fidler’s attitude towards the film colony. Fidler argued that he had taken up arms against film propaganda “because I am sure the public does not want it.”
