The Golden Age of Hollywood – the period that spanned from the late 1920s to the early 1960s – is generally considered to be one of the most important chapters in the history of filmmaking. How so? Well, during this era, the movie industry witnessed some major technological breakthroughs like the first talking movie with synchronized dialogue, the first colour movie and the first fully animated feature film.
Although the country was facing the disastrous Wall Street crash of 1929, and the majority of people in the country were suffering from mass unemployment, Hollywood still managed to thrive, producing more films than ever before and filling the screens with glamorous and glittering movie stars. From Gone with the Wind to Vertigo, prepare to travel through time with these luscious soundtracks from Hollywood’s Golden Age.
