Broadway and Hollywood
From as early as the 1920s millions of Americans were moviegoers.
In the beginning, movies had simple plots and were quickly over.
Often they lasted only fifteen minutes.
The first Western, The Great. Train Robbery, had three small scenes - a train robbery, a pursuit on horseback, and a surprise ending where the crook pointed his gun at the movie audience and fired.
During the 1900s, Hollywood and New Jersey were competitors for the movie industry.
New Jersey was desirable because so many actors and actresses worked on Broadway, which is near New Jersey.
However, all filming had to take place outside where the light was strong enough.
As a result, Hollywood, nestled in the hills of sunny southern California, became the better choice for year-round filming.
By the 1920s, Hollywood films became a booming industry.
Actors such as Charlie Chaplin were making $10,000 per week instead of a few dollars per day on Broadway.
Directors began producing longer movies with more placated plots.
In time, Hollywood stood for films and the rich people who starred in them.
