    Jewish immigrants from Germany and Eastern Europe founded Hollywood, chiefly such as Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros., and Columbia Pictures, and it wouldn't take off as much as today in this country had it not for them. Almost half of the Hollywood employees were Jewish. Also, Dells Computer. Inc was founded by a Jewish person from Texas, which helped introduce laptops into our way of life in America, meaning we can take the computer anywhere in the world for work and recreation.

The English language is full of Yiddish words and expressions The Jewish theater and the Jewish Hotels in the Adirondacks in Upper NY State had Yiddish comedians who added to early American humor in the movies and on early radio and TV with such artists as Jack Benny, Milton Berle who was known as Mr. Television, along with the Marx Brothers in the movies and on TV Grouch Marx has his own show You Bet Your life. Chaplin was another one of the Greats of Jewish comedy. Jews helped win WWII as the Atomic bomb project was headed by a Jew Oppenheimer. Early Hollywood had lots of Jewish actors and producers. Among the best actors was Edward G Robinson and John Garfield. There were many Jewish scientists and doctors.
