Product Details

This combination features Marble and Resin (Poly-Stone) Golden Age of Hollywood figures on a rounded edge Black and Birdseye Maple veneer Board with thin brown inlay highlight.

The Golden Age of Hollywood is said to have begun in the late 1920’s, from the end of the silent film era and continued through to the late 1950’s. The 1927 film, The jazz Singer, signaled the end of the end to silent films and box office receipts started to climb. This new surge in film popularity gave Hollywood enough momentum for three decades of successful film making.

During this magical era the big time studios MGM, Paramount, 20th Century Fox and RKO Pictures gave birth to dozens of new stars. many of these would go on to become Hollywood legends like Clark Gable, Bette Davies, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and Ingrid Bergman.

At the very beginning of Hollywood’s Golden Age things were a little slow to start due to the financial troubles caused by the Great Depression. However, Hollywood still managed to produce outstanding movies. These films had a very positive effect providing an escape for audiences who were struggling with the tough times caused by the Depression.

American movie goers reveled in the entertainment of Hollywood’s new found stars who lit up the screen with great flairs and passion and glamour. They laughed with the comedic actors of Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy W.C. Fields, the Marx Brothers and Mae West.
