ONTD Original: Requests & Poll Results from The Old Hollywood/Classic Movies series


Josephine Baker says Hi!

Thank you to the 260+ ONTDers who responded to the poll about the history of Old Hollywood/Classic Movies! I will go ahead and start researching info, and hopefully do a multi-part writeup in a reasonable amount of time. Now before ya'll say I'm not including the perspectives, experiences & talents of people of color, I did look up some information and books - which I have purchased or saved to my wishlist. Also, as a person of color myself (I'm Chinese), I know how it feels when there isn't any representations of my lived experiences. After the overview write-ups, I will delve into featuring one movie star at a time.

I made some graphics of the requests, so it'll be easier for me to reference. Also special thanks to chrryblssmninja for all the awesome reference info. You're the real MVP!

94% of those who voted were interested in the historical overview of Old Hollywood/Classic Movies era. The 1930s and 1940s had the most votes that's followed by 1950s and 1920s with the 1960s and 1910s with the least amount of votes.
