The years 1929-41 are examined, when, after the advent of sound movies, stage-trained actors were suddenly in vogue and among the early breakthrough stars were James Cagney, Bette Davis, Clark Gable, Katharine Hepburn and Edward G. Robinson. During the Great Depression, musicals proved to be great escapist fare and the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers films were the tops.
