Stereotypes about Italians abound in Hollywood films, even to this day.
This video is a short documentary that illustrates our main points about Hollywood's continuing mistreatment of Italian Americans. Presented by StereoTypeThis! http://www.stereotypethis.com

The video includes excerpts of recent ignominious films and summarizes the results of a survey conducted by the Italic Institute of America http://italic.org/mediaWatch/filmStud...

Please be advised that some of the excerpts contain strong language and possibly offensive scenes - such is Hollywood's approach to "realism."

The full survey, detailed on the Italic Institute of America's site, concluded that out of 1233 Italian-related films since the sound era (1928), 69% portray Italians in a negative light, i.e., as mobsters, boors, buffoons, bigots or bimbos.

This video is part of the Galleria Italica series of videos presented by the Italic Institute of America.
