Brian Rose is back to discuss The Golden Age of Hollywood. From the late 1920's through the end of WW II, MGM, Warner Brothers and others would dominate film production throughout the world. Despite the economic Depression, the studios became entertainment factories with each studio producing more than 50 movies a year. This presentation will examine the forces that made Hollywood the giant of global film-making during the Golden Age including studio politics, economics, the star system and the nature of the movie-going experience.
