Description: The Golden Age version of our Hollywood Star Chart features constellations named after some of the most culturally significant films to have appear on the silver screen since 1927 - 1960's. The stars that make up the clusters are the Hollywood stars that appeared in them.
The chart is based on the night sky over Los Angeles on October 6th 1927 - the release date of Al Jolson's 'The Jazz Singer' the first feature-length motion picture with synchronised dialogue which heralded a new era for cinema and the decline of the silent film.
The 62 films featured include those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance; Academy Award winners; and a few personal favourites. Films include King Kong, The Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca and Rebel without a Cause.
An A-Z key of featured actors lists their Academy Award nomination dates and the position of their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
