The Golden Era of films has endured through time, from cinema classics such as Casablanca (1942), which featured lines such as “Here’s looking at you, Kid” which has forever been associated with this timeless classic.
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) is now a Christmas classic across the Globe, featuring lines such as; “I wish I had a million dollars… Hot dog!” , this film has become associated with American Christmases. It’s themes are Universal themes, themes of family, love, vanity, money and the price of the American Dream.
Then we have British timeless classics such as Brief Encounter (1945) which formed and forged the careers of Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson, and has become one of the staples of British cinema; “I love you, I love your wide eyes, the way you laugh at my jokes, your shyness and the way you laugh at my jokes”
Golden Era films are part of cinema history and are quite often, the films which we can watch over and over again. Timeless.
