The History of Movies


Throughout history, the term “movie” has been used to describe a motion picture. This type of film is usually made to entertain and educate, but also has an artistic quality. This type of film is typically made from a thin plastic material called celluloid.

Movies were a popular form of entertainment in the 1930s, and during the Great Depression. During that time, most feature films were produced by production companies for profit. They were considered to be artistic works from the creator’s perspective. Often, these films were humorous mishaps.

In the early 1960s, women began to control the movie industry. This was due to the second wave of feminism. In addition, the American public was experiencing change during the decade.

Themes in movies have changed greatly over the years. These changes are usually attributed to the economic climate, the political landscape, or society in general. In addition, the purpose of a movie may change depending on the theme. This is why a producer has to be careful with his theme. He has to choose the right theme to suit the budget and popularity of the film.

In the mid-1960s, society underwent a huge transformation. Many factors were involved, such as the Cold War, the Second Red Scare, the Korean Conflict, and the enactment of the Equal Rights Amendment. In the end, the economy had to adjust, and the labor force had to deal with difficult times. This resulted in more realistic themes.
