Hollywood: a torchbearer of cinema around the world

The famous Hollywood is a district of Los Angeles in the state of California. Hollywood refers to American Cinema. You can see the word “Hollywood” carved into the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles. One of the prominent landmarks in the United States and around the world is the traditional ‘Hollywood Sign’. History shows that a part of an advertisement in 1923 created the word “Hollywood”.

Hollywood is intertwined with the Golden Age of history, dating back to the 18th century when it was an agricultural area. With the launch of the Nestor Motion Picture Company, filmmaking advanced. Around 1915, Los Angeles created several American movies.

Some well-known motion picture companies that established their studios in Hollywood include Paramount, Columbia, Warner Bros, and RKO Radio Pictures Inc. By 1920, Hollywood achieved universal recognition as the center of the motion picture industry in the United States. As Hollywood gradually advanced as the country’s renowned film industry, restaurants, banks, movie theaters, and clubs began to multiply. The National Register of Historic Places decided to include the Hollywood Boulevard shopping and entertainment district in its records.

The base of the eminent “Hollywood” sign, with American roots, was initially established to herald a new sector atop Mount Lee, known as “Hollywood Land.”

By 1923, the sign was in disrepair. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, having been given due authority, removed the last four letters from the word “Hollywood Land” and re-established the remaining portion of the sign on the hillside in 1943. The chamber of commerce owned the sign marked registered. which the filming used exclusively with his permission. In 1956, the Chamber of Commerce awarded these five-pointed stars to the entertainment industry to honor its top contributors. This gave rise to the Walk of Fame with the names of 2,400 celebrities etched in five-pointed pink terrazzo and bronze stars on the sidewalks along Hollywood Boulevard.

From the end of the silent film period from 1927 to 1948, the Hollywood Movie studio system had control over the films shown throughout the country. Five of the major Hollywood studios owned huge theaters that showed only movies produced by their hired actors. They are Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), Paramount, 20th Century Fox, RKO Radio Pictures Inc. and Warner Bros.

Due to Hollywood’s strong position in the Golden Age of the film industry, stars had no choice but to enter into studio contracts. Prominent stars at the time included Mae West, Ronald Reagan, Judy Garland, Will Rogers, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, John Wayne, and Audie Murphy.

The United States Supreme Court in 1948 made a landmark decision. They said that studios that had actors hired exclusively for them could not own the theaters. The Golden Age of Hollywood was over.

When television paid off and became a popular medium of entertainment, these studios contributed programs to television beginning in the mid-1950s. It is of great interest to note that the top 10 highest grossing hits of 2012 grossed of $3.3 billion.
