Item description for Movies of the 50s (Midi S.) by Jurgen Muller...

At a time when people were terrified of UFOs and Communism, the movie industry was busy producing movies that ranged from film noir to suspense to grandiose musicals; apparently the paranoid public in the 1950s wanted family entertainment and dark, brooding pictures in equal doses. The result is a decade's worth of truly monumental cinema, from Hitchcock masterpieces (Vertigo, Psycho, Rear Window) to comedy classics (Tati's Mr. Hulot's Holiday, Billy Wilder's Some Like it Hot) to groundbreaking nouvelle vague films (Godard's Breathless, Truffaut's The Four Hundred Blows) and profound, innovative dramas such as Antonioni's L?Avventura, Fellini's La Strada, John Huston's Misfits, and Kubrick's Paths of Glory. Though censorship kept sex safely off-screen, sexy stars such as James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Marilyn Monroe provided plenty of heat in Rebel Without a Cause, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes respectively. A survey of the most important films of the 1950s

Movies of the 50s  Aug 9, 2005
This continues in a great series of books on cinema that Taschen has put out. The films are a well selected lot representing the 1950s with good write-ups and an excellent selection of photos accompanying each film chosen. I can't wait for them to come out with editions on films of the 1940s, 1930s and the Silent period (covering the years 1900-1929).

My only complaint is why the year 1950 has been missed out from the decade of the 1950s while 1960 is included instead!
