A happy, fun-loving crew is great

But Hollywood would only learn a lesson if the final product, the films, turn out to be good! The question is: does this kind of an atmosphere necessarily result in a high-quality film?

I would say not necessarily, but possible. Though this is IMO, I thought King Kong and Lovely Bones were quite bad, and wasn't overly impressed with LOTR (though they were most certainly very successful). So at least for me, a happy cast and crew did not translate into a good film.

After all, one of the most hellish film productions ever - Apocalypse Now - produced a masterpiece. The set of Lawrence of Arabia was not the funnest place to work, but out came an epic film like few others.

In short, I don't care too much about what the behind the scenes experience is (unless it is abusive or exploitative.) As long as the meat grinder produces high-quality hamburger, I'm happy.
