9 1930s

I love the 30's! It was so laid back, back then. But also quite sad with the Great Depression and all. But it has one of my favorite films in it! JewEL ROBBERY! X3 It stars Kay Francis. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Universal Monsters, King Kong - PeeledBanana

City Lights, M, The Wizard of Oz. - AJG1314

10 1920s

Watch "The Roaring Twenties" and you will change your mind. The 1920s pretty much started the movie industry, so you should really thank them.

The General, The Gold Rush, Metropolis. - AJG1314
