Golden Age of

Golden Age of Hollywood During the so-called Golden Age of Hollywood, or the classic Hollywood narrative, are the terms used in the history of cinema, which designates both a visual style and sound for films and a production mode used in the American film industry between 1910 and 1960 approximately. Classic style, is fundamentally based on the principle of continuity or the release of “invisible” style. That is, the camera and sound recording should not call attention to themselves. At that time the films in the Hollywood studios were shot in a manner similar to that used to assemble cars on the assembly lines of Henry Ford.No two films are exactly alike, but most were a genre: Western, comedy, black cinema, music, animation, biography, etc, and the same creative teams often worked in the films produced by the same studio – for example, Cedric Gibbons and Herbert Stothart always worked on MGM films, Alfred Newman worked at Twentieth Century Fox for twenty years, almost all films of Cecil B. De Mille was produced by Paramount, the films of director Henry King were mostly shot to Twentieth-Century Fox, etc.. You could get to guess what each movie studio had produced only by the actors who appeared in it, each studio had its own style and characteristic touches which made it possible to find out – a quality that does not exist today. Yet each movie was slightly different, and in contrast to car manufacturers, most people involved in the shooting were artists.For example, To Have and Have Not (1944) is famous not only for its pair of actors Humphrey Bogart (1899-1957) and Lauren Bacall (1924 -) but also for having been written by two future winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature: Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), author of the novel on which the film was based, and William Faulkner (1897-1962), who worked on the big screen adaptation. But making movies was still a business and made money producing operating under the so-called studio system. The main studies were thousands of people on the payroll, actors, producers, directors, writers, specialists, mechanics and technicians. They also owned hundreds of theaters in cities and towns all over the country, theaters and projected his films always need fresh material. Many historians emphasize the many good films that emerged in this period of tight control for filming.Other titles coming out of the Golden Age that are considered classics today we are: Casablanca, What a Wonderful Life, the original version of King Kong, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
