The Golden Age of Hollywood is generally regarded as being the era from the advent of the talkies around 1930 until the end of the 1940s. Already an industry where mere mortals were raised up to the adulation of thousands, the actors that graced the screens of cinemas seemed to have been raised above the difficulties facing the audience through the Great Depression, or given the forms of heroes fighting the good fight in World War II.What do you think, Story Games? Indie games are starting to get noticed in Melbourne (DitV and BW both at the city FLGS) â€“ what's something that would go with this theme and knock people's socks off?
Despite thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, more movies having been made since that time, the names of actors of that era are still easily recognised - Greta Garbo, Bela Lugosi, Humphrey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn, Clark Gable, Shirley Temple, Groucho Marx, Mae West, Judy Garland and many more.
In 2007, it will be Arcanacon's 25th birthday - our silver jubilee. And following on in the 'silver' theme, we're running this year's con with a theme of "Legends of the Silver Screen". The focus of the theme is primarily on the actors of Hollywood's Golden Age, but is also meant to encompass the mythology of cinema in that era.
