The 1950’s

An era of mischief, fun, rock n’ roll, modernist youth culture, post-modern art, epic films, musicals, romance, tragic dramas, the Cold War, and the era of the Baby Boomers (who interestingly would now be in their 50’s & 60’s).

Films of the 50’s, set in their time, were a reflection of their times, and they beautifully captured the easy going, fun loving, youthful lifestyles of that period.
