The Timeline Of Blockbusters

This video presents the idea of a Declining Hollywood. The history from this video showcases how Hollywood involved from a small and limited industry into a moneymaking empire. However, there was a downside to the abundance of successful movies like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Gone with the Wind (1939), King Kong (1933), Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Jaws (1975), and Star Wars (1977). There were studio controlled relationships between actors and directors in the 1940’s. Over budget films started to get made with dire consequences like the well known box office bomb of Heaven’s Gate (1980). Competition grew with the rise of television and home video which made the movie theater experience just for spectacular genres like superheroes or fantasy, not dramas or comedies.
