Although 1954 and 1964 are somewhat arbitrary years to take, I have chosen them as much for the appearance of two benchmark films as for any other reason.
The period framed by these two films was dominated by the orthodox classic style to such an overwhelming extent that it has been common to see it not only as a boring period for filmmaking, but also as the lowest ebb of post war government production.

Godzilla (1954 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (370 words)
