Title: Jacob at the Country Club : Hollywood Images of the WASP
Authors: O'Brien, Patrick
Keywords: Hollywood
Issue Date: 31-Jul-1999
Publisher: 北海学園大学人文学会
Abstract: Jewish predominance in Hollywood has resulted in many films with implicit or explicit plots revolving around Gentile-Jewish encounters. Among these, a good many have been comedies. Three comedies which comment on Jewish perceptions of the standard bearer of American Gentile culture-the WASP-are all set in that bastion of WASPdom, the country club. In Caddyshack, Caddyshack II, and Happy Gilmore, the Jew, as quintessential outsider, confronts the closed and snobbish atmosphere of the WASP's last domain.
