Margaret Throsby’s ‘The Golden Age of Hollywood’ on ABC Classic

Next week on ABC Classic, Margaret Throsby explores the era that defined cinema, The Golden Age of Hollywood.
From the 30s to the 50s, cinema emerged from the silent era, helped America get through the Depression and the Second World War, and created some of the greatest ever films: Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Wuthering Heights and more.
Over one week of special broadcasts Margaret explores the great soundtracks, the iconic stars and the stories behind The Golden Age of Hollywood from 12pm-1pm Monday 18 – Friday 22 March.
