Although the 1970s opened with Hollywood experiencing a financial and artistic depression, the decade became a creative high point in the US film industry. Restrictions on language, adult content and sexuality, and violence had loosened up, and these elements became more widespread. The counter-culture of the time had influenced Hollywood to be freer, to take more risks and to experiment with alternative, young film makers (nicknamed "Movie Brats"), as old Hollywood professionals and old-style moguls died out and a new generation of film makers arose and caused Hollywood to be renewed and reborn.
