Hi dears!! I’m returning to the posts about the movies of each genre. Now it will be about the 50’s movies, in special, in these two genres: Comedy and Drama.
Today I will dedicate only to the Comedies, especially the Romantic ones, which I believe that is one of the favorite genres about the 50’s and about the American cinema in general…
To start, how we can talk about the 50’s comedies without remember the most known icon Marilyn Monroe? She initiated her carreer in the 40’s end, but was in the 50’s that she stood out, entering on pop culture’s history and keeping herself loved until today. Among the movies she acted in the 50’s are:
– About the movie “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” give a look on the famous scene where Monroe sings “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend“, which has inspired several artists over time, as Madonna in her musical video “Material Girl” (1985) and Nicole Kidman in the movie “Moulin Rouge” (2001):
Another actress who stood out in the Romantic comedies in 50’s was Audrey Hepburn, but in the contrary side of Monroe, she acted in more behaved roles. Her first big movie was “Roman Holiday” (1953 – also starring Gregory Peck), which won the Academy Awards (1954) in the categories “Best Actress” (Audrey), “Best Costume – Black and White” and “Best Original Story”; and the Golden Globe Awards (1954), the BAFTA (1954 – UK) and the NYFCC Award (1953) in the category “Best Actress” (Audrey Hepburn). See the trailer:
Other Romantic comedies with Miss Hepburn in the 50’s:
I believe these two movies with Doris Day are also adorable: “Teacher’s Pet” (1958), also starring Clark Gable, and “Pillow Talk” (1959), also starring Rock Hudson.
