Brothercanyouspareadimeforamovie Photo I heard that families during the Great Depression seldom had two nickels to rub together. I read that when they did, they probably took in a matinee, because back then about 70 million people a week went to the movies looking to laugh 'til they cried, to get so scared they peeked through their fingers to see what happened next, to swoon in tune and get romantic, or dive in and swashbuckle some adventure.

So Hollywood delivered, and how! The Golden Age arguably spanned 1929 through the late ‘50's and, although the 1934 Hays Production Code did stifle things a bit, the ‘30's and early ‘40's - the years of this quiz - were particularly fertile concerning classic films and great acting. The performers with whom audiences briefly remedied the misery of everyday hard times and the movies are simply some of the very best – at least most critics think so. Well, there was this one foreign dictator...but you just can’t please’em all!
I hope you enjoy the show.
