Filed under : About.com

While the New Hollywood era started in the late-1960s, the Second Golden Age came into full bloom in the 1970s and delivered some of cinema’s greatest films.

Of course, with experimentation comes excess and by the early 1980s, the post-classical 1970s gave way to corporatized blockbusters that dominate the market even today. But for a brief period of about 15 years, studios took creative chances on films that have since become New Classics.
