Consensus In Mainstream American Cinema And Television

For the first fifty years of American mainstream cinema there was little division made between different kinds of audiences. Films presented entertainment appropriate for all ages. Noir was a B movie phenomenon relegated to the margins. Romances, Westerns, Musicals, and Comedies all had mass appeal not only to people of differing backgrounds but to all ages as well. In the era before television, families were going out to the movies 4 times a week on average.
