Clark Gable, Vivian Leigh, of Gone with the Wind, Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn from The African Queen, and the legendary Marilyn Monroe, famous for her pose over an air vent in The Seven Year Itch --these were the names, along with dozens more, that emblazoned the fronts of movie theaters throughout the nineteen thirties, forties and fifties. This time in Hollywood is known as the Golden age, and for good reason. The film industry during this time was extremely affluent and powerful, and was producing so many movies during this period that major additions could almost always be seen being constructed at the sites of RKO, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, and MGM, the most successful studios of the era.
Many factors played a role in the demise of the golden age of Hollywood besides the infamous blacklisting of talent. The nation was reeling from the effects of the war, a depression, and the arrival of the atomic bomb. Television, which was up and coming, also was a threat to the studios that had lived high on the hog for over twenty years. A gradual decline in audiences was not the least of Hollywood's problems as the end of the fifties approached, but all these troubles added to the slow demise of the great studio-owned monopolies that had controlled - and were made rich, by the Golden era of Hollywood. Never again has Hollywood produced as many films per year as at that time.
