Never in the history of time has their been a more influential and powerful movement in cinema as the Hollywood Golden Age. Also known as Classical Hollywood, the 20’s to the 60’s introduced some of the finest filmmakers and actors in history. While the Hollywood New Wave might have changed how cinema was perceived, the Golden Age is what made cinema a staple of pop culture. People were lining up in droves to see the newest John Wayne, Cary Grant, and Marilyn Monroe films and now, nearly 100 years after the start of the Classical era of Hollywood, we still find ourselves going back to this time to find inspiration, influence, and entertainment. While the French New Wave, B-movies, and European Art films all helped shape the climate of cinema today, none of these influential movements in film history would have been possible without the Golden Age of Hollywood!
