The stars. The studios. The atmosphere. It was a decade of change in the film industry. The pre-code turning to the Hays Code; The silents turning into the talkies; black & white turning into color.
I would have loved to have been there - a personal secretary, a film editor (since film editing was given to women because the
sexist idea was that they could edit because it was like sewing), a writer, anything just observe the electric buzz of film history.
