John Milius was a writer-director, and was one of those to whom Hollywood passed on its legacy in 1970. As Milius said, the survival of civilizations in history can not be attributed merely to how they turn their reins over to the younger generations. Milius was part of the “film generation” that revived American cinema after the studio system collapsed. Hollywood, during that period, saw bouts of rebellion, experiment, fear, and optimism. A broader worldview was provided by foreign films, and specialized films were facilitated in art houses that were established in major cities. Repertory, midnight shows, and revival theaters were able to celebrate previous motion pictures. As equipment for making films became cheaper, colleges began to offer screen studies courses. Cinema was a fundamental art form during the twentieth century.
