The Motion Picture Association recently released a report to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its film rating system. The report, “G” is for Golden: The Motion Picture Association Film Ratings at 50, includes the results of a new survey of American parents, never-before-released, comprehensive data on the nearly 30,000 films rated since 1968, and a detailed look at the history, evolution, and process behind the ratings.
Charlie Rivkin took over as the CEO of the Motion Picture Association in late 2017. He is perhaps uniquely qualified for the role running the trade and lobbying organization for the Hollywood film industry; he worked in entertainment, including a stint as the CEO of The Jim Henson Co. before serving as an ambassador to France, followed by time as an Assistant Secretary at the State Department under President Obama. In an interview with Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal, Rivkin talked about the enormity of the overseas market for Hollywood movies, why he's not at all worried about a content bubble, and more.
