-Golden Age Era gradually lost its popularity to Television
-Many theaters served dinner for their customers at a high price While some color film processes (including hand coloring) were experimented with and in limited use from the earliest days of motion picture, the switch for most films being in black and white to most being in color was gradual, taking place from the 1930s to the 1960s. Since the advent of color, black and white mass media often connotes something "nostalgic", historic, or anachronistic.
For example, the 1998 Woody Allen film Celebrity was shot entirely in Black and White, and Allen has often made use of the practice since Manhattan in 1979.
Other films such as The Wizard of Oz and The Phantom of the Opera play with the concept of black and white anachronism, using certain scenes to portray some characters as outdated or less important than others shot in full color. At first, the sound films incorporating synchronized dialogue-known as "talking pictures" or "talkies"-were exclusively shorts; the earliest feature length movies with recorded sound included only music and effects. The feature film originally presented as a talkie was The Jazz Singer, released in October 1927. Innovations in sound-on-film led to the first commercial screening of short motion pictures using the technology, which took place in New York in April 1923.

Famous comedy TV shows Classical Hollywood Era was an influential period that advanced and expanded ideas for film makers everywhere. Warner Brothers gained recognition with the release of The Jazz Singer in 1927. As a result, it was able to acquire its own string of movie theaters with its success.
Likewise, MGM also owned a string of theaters since its formation in 1924, known as Loews Theaters. STYLE
Time in Classical Hollywood is continuous. Usually, the only manipulation of time allowed in classical films is flashback, which serve as a purpose to introduce a memory sequence of a character- for example: Casablanca.
As for the concept of space, Classical Hollywood films strive to overcome or conceal the two-dimensionality of film and is strongly centered upon the human body.
Majority of shots focus on gestures or facial expressions.
There seem to be a "typical" or "fixed" narrative style of Classical Hollywood films: introduction, middle (climax) and conclusion which generally has a distinct resolution at the end. Famous Actors and Actresses of the time
