Meeting Room B
From the late 1920s through the end of World War II, studios like MGM, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, and RKO would dominate film production, not only in America but throughout the world. Despite the economic problems posed by the Depression, the studios became virtual entertainment factories, with each studio producing more than 50 movies a year.
Professor emeritus, Brian Rose, will examine the forces that made Hollywood the giant of global film-making and the special nature of its achievements during its Golden Age.
