“…West came to California late in the 1930s to write film scripts…[H]e was a connoisseur of disenchantment with American dreams, and what he found in Hollywood did not disappoint him. …The Day of the Locust (1939)…dealt with the hordes of people—especially those from the Midwest—who came to Southern California for breathy excitement but found that life was a numbing succession of perfect, empty, cloudless days.”
