He ran for Governor of California and Hollywood opposed him
Who is he?

He ran for Governor of California and Hollywood opposed him.
No, he's not Arnold. In face he's not even a republican.
And Hollywood loves him now.

But when this man ran for Governor Hollywood viciously attacked him, his policies, his beliefs.
many actors appeared in ads denouncing his Ideas. Studios bought airtime to run ads attacking his policies.

He was a famous author who made the cover of time magazine.

You history buffs know who I'm talking about.

For a picture of the time cover go to <A HREF="http://www.thequizkid.com ">www.thequizkid.com</A>

4. Read Greg Mitchell's Book on the 1934 election
"the Campaign of the Century", excellent book, details how Louis B Mayer and Irving Thalberg tore Sinclair to pieces!
