It was a different world already within twenty years. People used cinema in the 1930s to escape the harshness of reality. Compared with the relative prosperity of the 1920s.

That's what I meant. That Cinema was literally born in the 1930s but the concepts of the actor/superstar and the actor/actress as fashion icon or social icon were greatly shaped then.
Hello? Look up the word "literal" in the dictionary, squire. Cinema wasn't "literally born in the 1930s". For sure, that decade marked the beginning of its Golden Age but I'm reacting solely to your erroneous terminology. It's like saying that the birth of the World Wide Web was in 2006 because of Facebook.

Nothing?!? You are mistaken, dude. You just don't know about them yet!
