Lebanese performers think that by visiting Los Angeles, they can claim a professional association with "Hollywood." Some come for a week's visit, and then go back to Lebanon to speak about their "experience in Hollywood." Fake claims and false pretensions. Are these not the essence of the Lebanonese idea? I have a struggling actor relative who lived in LA, trying to make it for years before returning to Lebanon, and his family would proudly talk about "our son in Hollywood."
