Part Two – Best Picture Winners from 1941 to 1960
In our previous journey into the history of the Best Picture Oscar winners, we looked at the early days of Hollywood, a time known as ‘The Golden Age’.
The Golden Age of Hollywood was a period of great growth, experimentation, and change in the industry that brought international prestige to Hollywood and its movie stars.
Under the all-controlling studio system of the era, five movie studios known as the “Big Five” dominated: Warner Brothers, RKO, Fox, MGM, and Paramount. Smaller studios included Columbia, Universal and United Artists.
In part two we will have a look at more Golden Age classics that won the most coveted prize in cinema.
