In the period following WWII when most of the films were idealized with conventional portrayals of men and women, young people wanted new and exciting symbols of rebellion. Hollywood responded to audience demands through the rise of the anti-hero and anti-heroines, with Marlon Brando, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe being the main stars. Studios tried to counter the rise of television through all sorts of (mostly failed) inventions like 3-D, Smell-O-Vision, and cinerama. Risks were taken with lavish, overstated, spectacular epics and musicals.
