Old Hollywood was known for its glitz and glamour, for its brightly shining stars like Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland. The Golden Age of Hollywood was a time between the ’20s and ’60s when the studio system ruled, meaning the Big Five studios controlled the film industry and the stars they made contacts with. Today, in times of individuality and independence, this would be hardly imaginable.
But Old Hollywood has made such a mark on our culture that its legacy is still very much present, thanks to the hundreds of classic movies, iconic photographs and music made during that time. And this Instagram account is your ultimate destination for vintage entertainment.
