People were enjoying life as these new changes gave the USA a major jump in its economy in this short period. One reason why it is accurate to call America in the 1920’s ‘The Roaring Twenties’ was because of the sudden upsurge in the film industry. 1,000 black and white silent movies were made in America. One of the most famous actors was Charlie Chaplin, who was an actor in the comedy films. Films really blossomed in the 1920s, expanding upon the foundations of film from earlier years.
To what extent does “The Great Gatsby” reflect the attitudes and values of real-life American society in the 1920s? ‘The Great Gatsby’ written by F. Scott Fitzgerald is an extremely contextual novel. Many autobiographical elements are incorporated into the story as is Fitzgerald’s own criticism of the era. The fact that the author lived out the hedonistic existence written about in the novel, and experienced the effects of it, including the severe social gap between rich and poor, the rise in organised crime, racism and first wave feminism, gives a unique insight into the attitudes and values of real-life American society in the 1920s. As Arthur Mizener wrote in 1963, “Fitzgerald spoke for his own time and perhaps, in a broader sense, for all generations of Americans”.
Hollywood is probably the most prestigious movie-making industry in the western world; in global terms, probably the most in demand. For decades Hollywood has exported its films to countries all over the world. In 1913, 32 million feet of motion pictures were exported. In 1925, just 12 years later, the number had gone up to 235 million feet of motion pictures exported (Guback, 1985:466). Concerns started to arise on the great number of American motion pictures being screened in different countries.
The cast did an excellent job in this movie, you can see how much they have grown into their rolls over the past ten year since the first Fast and the Furious movie was released.

“Compare the marketing campaign of Skyfall to that of Monsters’ Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes was a huge box office hit, making over $20 million in the opening weekend alone.

At the start of the 20th century the entertainment industry boomed with the building popularity of movies and the invention of the television. With the growth of technology came newer and faster ways to produce movies and television shows, dramatically increasing the competition to make the best movie possible or the television show that will keep an audience interested week to week. Today, five to six movies are released each weekend and new television shows are airing on what seems like a daily basis. With the high number of movies and television shows to choose from, the main question a director and writer must answer is what makes the audience like or dislike their movie or show. It is impossible to create something that everyone will like, but I believe that it is the elements that go into the movie that can make a movie entertaining or not.

America would likely not be the same today without the cultural influences of studio systems, the Golden Age of film, and more specifically without MGM studios. Brief History of the Hollywood Golden Age There were two major advances that started the transition from basic film to the studio system: feature films and the star system. The growth of motion pictures from single “one reeler” films which lasted about 15 minutes to features lasting ninety minutes and longer made it possible for studios to create more meaningful stories with a complex plot and additional actors. This change in story type was much more intriguing to the more affluent middle-class (Balio, 1995, p. 12). Because the audience was now able to view stars for longer periods of time, thus feeling more connected to certain actors and causing stars to take on
The NBA’s popularity and wealth increased dramatically by the time Michael Jordan had been drafted by the Bulls. Through new technologies Michael Jordan and NBA games could be seen around the world. The NBA became a global television goldmine because it was able to capitalize off of Jordan’s global recognition and popularity. Before Michael Jordan had been a Chicago bull the franchise’s wealth had been a meager nineteen million, which number quickly grew to over one hundred and ninety million in a matter of years. The NBA was not the only company to capitalize off of the Michael Jordan phenomenon, corporations such as Nike and Coca-Cola made billions worldwide off of Jordan.
