The Hollywood Player is a program which can run applets created by the full
version of Hollywood. Applets are compiled Hollywood scripts and can contain
data sections as well. The advantage of the Hollywood Player is that people

no need to include several executables any longer – just put the applet into
your distribution archive and tell the user to install the respective Hollywood
Player for his platform!
