Abstract

The period known as New Hollywood in American film was created by the American legal system coupled with a growing dissatisfaction with the status quo. A series of First Amendment cases along with the 1948 Paramount decision forced Hollywood to produce graphic and existential films that appealed to the disaffected youth generation and laid out in unprecedented style the problems that plagued the youths of the day.
