The ’60s Were a Big Deal: ‘Cargo’ is the Movie That Changed the Movie Industry
After the release of ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,’ the ’60S were a big deal.
Not just for Hollywood.
It was also a biggie for the rest of the country, and it’s a story of two genres — music and film — at the heart of the movement that would ultimately usher in the age of blockbuster films.
It’s a tale of two movies, and of the way that Hollywood and the music industry collaborated to shape the zeitgeist.
A decade before, ‘The Bad and The Ugly’ became a hit on its release date, and was hailed as the most influential movie of all time.
It set the template for how the music and movie industries would work together for years to come, with a few notable exceptions.
And like most of its predecessors, it was largely overlooked by the rest, thanks to its relatively small budget and low critical acclaim.
And that, according to The Beatles, is why it matters: It shaped the zeigtgeist, and gave rise to an entire generation of musicians.
What happened to ‘Cement’ and ‘Django Unchained’ in the decade before it?
They were both released in the same year, the year that ‘Cinder’ was released, which is also when ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ became the most popular film of the decade.
It had a huge impact, even though it wasn’t directed by a Hollywood studio.
‘Cinéma’ didn’t take place until just over a decade later, in 1980, and wasn’t made by Hollywood.
And while the two movies were released at the same time, it’s important to note that ‘Good morning Vietnam’ was a relatively unknown movie when it came out in 1980.
It didn’t even have a trailer until just two years later.
That means that ‘DJango Unchaining’ had the most impact in its first year, but was a very small part of the film’s overall success.
And it wasn, in fact, the last film released by a major studio before the dawn of digital release.
That made it even more unique.
How did the music scene shape the film industry?
One of the major factors in how ‘Cinema’ came to dominate the music world was the way in which the industry and the artists worked together.
That meant the music scenes were a key part of making movies, but the music wasn’t the only thing that had an impact.
The movie industry was a big place.
By the time ‘Cinderella’ was nominated for an Academy Award in 1979, it had become the biggest film franchise of all-time.
The soundtrack to the film alone was more than three billion songs, and they played in every corner of the world, with more than 100 million of those songs being played at the time of its release.
With so much music being recorded at that time, and so many songs being made, it made sense that the music would be a big part of what made the film.
And the result was a movie that, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer described it, was “the music of the future.”
But that didn’t mean that Hollywood was the only place where the music was played.
By 1979, Hollywood was beginning to embrace more progressive and experimental music, and the likes of the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and Neil Young were playing festivals, festivals that were open to anyone, and playing shows that were smaller than their Hollywood counterparts.
By then, it also began to shift away from the traditional film music, to what would later become known as the “alternative sound.”
But as the 1980s drew to a close, that also meant that the industry was getting smaller.
When ‘Carnival’ came out, the film itself was the second biggest film of all times, and yet the soundtrack had already sold about 100 million copies, according a study by the Columbia Pictures Music & Art Department.
That’s not even counting the huge amount of music being released in 1980s music.
The Beatles had already been in the studio for six years, and by 1982, the Beatles were working on their first album.
But even as ‘Corman’ and the Stones were creating hits, the music community was going through a major shift.
The film industry was starting to embrace the electronic and alternative music scene, and a lot of artists were releasing their own records, which would change the way the music business worked.
By 1984, it became common for musicians to be able to record and release their own music, with some of the biggest names in rock and roll making their debut as independent artists in 1984.
But the music still didn’t quite take off as the industry had hoped.
‘Dirty Dancing’ was still a hit, but it wasn: It was the first movie to gross over $200 million at the box office, and grossed just over $10 million at that point.
