Classical Hollywood cinema or the classical Hollywood narrative are terms used in film history which designate both a visual and sound style for making motion pictures and a mode of production used in the American film industry between 1917 and 1960 More bloopers

This period is often referred to as the Golden Age of Hollywood An identifiable cinematic form emerged during this period called classical Hollywood style

Classical style is fundamentally built on the principle of continuity editing or invisible style That is the camera and the sound recording should never call attention to themselves as they might in films from earlier periods other countries or in a modernist or postmodernist work

Throughout the early 1930s risque films and salacious advertising became widespread in the short period known as Pre-Code Hollywood MGM dominated the industry and had the top stars in Hollywood and was also credited for creating the Hollywood star system altogether MGM stars included at various times King of Hollywood Clark Gable Norma Shearer Greta Garbo Joan Crawford Jean Harlow Gary Cooper Mary Pickford Henry Fonda Marilyn Monroe Elizabeth Taylor Judy Garland Ava Gardner James Stewart Katharine Hepburn Vivien Leigh Grace Kelly Gene Kelly Gloria Stuart Fred Astaire Ginger Rogers John Wayne Barbara Stanwyck John Barrymore Audrey Hepburn and Buster Keaton Another great achievement of American cinema during this era came through Walt Disneys animation In 1937 Disney created the most successful film of its time Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Many film historians have remarked upon the many great works of cinema that emerged from this period of highly regimented film-making One reason this was possible is that with so many movies being made not every one had to be a big hit A studio could gamble on a medium-budget feature with a good script and relatively unknown actors Citizen Kane directed by Orson Welles and often regarded as the greatest film of all time fits that description In other cases strong-willed directors like Howard Hawks Alfred Hitchcock and Frank Capra battled the studios in order to achieve their artistic visions The apogee of the studio system may have been the year 1939 which saw the release of such classics as The Wizard of Oz Gone with the Wind Stagecoach Mr Smith Goes to Washington Destry Rides AgainYoung Mr Lincoln Wuthering Heights Only Angels Have Wings Ninotchka Babes in Arms Gunga Din and The Roaring Twenties Among the other films from the Golden Age period that are now considered to be classics Casablanca The Adventures of Robin Hood Its a Wonderful Life It Happened One Night King Kong Citizen Kane Swing Time Some Like It Hot A Night at the Opera All About Eve The Searchers Breakfast At Tiffanys North by Northwest Dinner at Eight Rebel Without a Cause Rear Window Double Indemnity Mutiny on the Bounty City Lights Red River The Manchurian Candidate Bringing Up Baby Singin in the Rain To Have and Have Not Goodbye Mr Chips Roman Holiday Giant and Jezebel

The style of Classical Hollywood cinema as elaborated by David Bordwell has been heavily influenced by the ideas of the Renaissance and its resurgence of mankind as the focal point

Thus classical narration progresses always through psychological motivation ie by the will of a human character and its struggle with obstacles towards a defined goal The aspects of space and time are subordinated to the narrative element which is usually composed of two lines of action A romance intertwined with a more generic one such as business or in the case of Alfred Hitchcock films solving a crime

Time in classical Hollywood is continuous since non-linearity calls attention to the illusory workings of the medium The only permissible manipulation of time in this format is the flashback It is mostly used to introduce a memory sequence of a character eg Casablanca

Likewise the treatment of space in classic Hollywood strives to overcome or conceal the two-dimensionality of film invisible style and is strongly centered upon the human body The majority of shots in a classical film focus on gestures or facial expressions medium-long and medium shots André Bazin once compared classical film to a photographed play in that the events seem to exist objectively and that cameras only give us the best view of the whole play
