46 The CIA in Hollywood So what does the story of The­Classified­Files­of­the­CIA teach us, despite the fact that the show never made it to air? For one, the project belies the CIA’s claims that it is simply interested in reversing the negative Agency images that Hollywood perpetuates, as it attempted to use this series to mitigate a public relations disaster and to generate interest in the Agency in the post–Cold War era. In fact, Houle recalls that The­Classified­ Files­of­the­CIA was largely envisioned as a recruitment tool, not just as a way to help the CIA get past the Ames debacle.

Other Contributors to the CIA’s Negative Image Despite the Jack Ryan films and other recent CIA-Hollywood collaborations, however, the depictions of a competent and moral CIA are rare. But is there anything else that may account for Hollywood’s negative representations of the Agency besides its own history? The answer is yes. The demands of cinematic storytelling and the political leanings of Hollywood also play a crucial part. More specifically, screenwriters and directors are asked to tell complicated stories in the space of just one to two hours, which pushes them to use highly recognizable archetypes to move a story forward at a fast pace.

34 TPP further demonstrated its desire and ability to depict the Agency in a positive light through its hiring practices. 36 As such, these individuals were not selected for the project. Houle also noted that he personally felt a “need to protect the CIA’s rights on the project,” joking: It’s ironic because I came of age in the sixties, when the CIA was the bad guy. ” But when I went there and started meeting with people, I realized that the CIA was just made up of individuals who weren’t very James Bond–like at all.
