Umoja's insight:

Trailer for 1932 "Scarface" is a great example of what Hollywood Cinema use to look like. Because the movie was made when this film style first began, the name as well as the content had to appear to be helping the public as opposed to hurting them; by filling the theatres with filth. The extension of the name "The Shame of a Nation," allows us, the audience, to believe that instead of glorifying the gangsters we're more so condeming them. Even with the use of the narration during the trailer, the word usage is against the mob bosses and on the side of the public, that they are said to be hurting in the process of their greed.

One of the aesthetics of this style of filmaking is the glowing look produced by certain lighting used by the directors. The Leading ladies of this Classic Hollywood time frame all have the same glowing look about themselves; thus defining them to a certain genre of film.

Here's Looking At You, Kid - Casablanca (5/6) Movie CLIP (1942) HD

Umoja's insight:

Michael Curitz's Casablanca is one of the most classic, Classical Hollywood Cinema films that has ever been made. Lines from this movie that was made in the '40s are still quaoted to day in this new millenium. The typical love story; man who doesn't want to be loved; girl who can't help but to try; in the end they can't live without eachother. This is what really sets the genre in a genre, because Classical Hollywood Movies follow this pattern.
