Two-color (red and green) feature films were the first color films produced, including the first two-color feature film The Toll of the Sea, and then better-known films such as Stage Struck (1925) and The Black Pirate (1926). It would take the development of a new three-color camera, in 1932, to usher in true full-color Technicolor.
Sam Wood's best 30s films were Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) and two Marx Brothers films, A Night at the Opera (1935) and A Day at the Races (1937). King Vidor directed The Champ (1932) and Stella Dallas (1937) - among others.

Here they are. The movies I consider to be the absolute best motion pictures of the 1950s. Feel free to comment on my choice of movies.

Older viewers were prone to stay at home and watch television (about 10.5 million US homes had a TV set in 1950). In the period following WWII when most of the films were idealized with conventional portrayals of men and women, young people wanted new and exciting symbols of rebellion.
A town Marshal, despite the disagreements of his newlywed bride and the townspeople around him, must face a gang of deadly killers alone at high noon when the gang leader, an outlaw he sent up years ago, arrives on the noon train.
By the late 1950s, increasingly explicit films began to appear, such as Anatomy of a Murder (1959), Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), Psycho (1960), and The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (1960). The MPAA reluctantly granted the seal of approval for these films, although not until certain cuts were made.
The proliferation of television in the early 1950s contributed to a heavy mid-century push for color within the film industry. In 1947, only 12 percent of American films were made in color. By 1954, that number had risen to over 50 percent. The color boom was aided by the breakup of Technicolor's near-monopoly on the medium.
