Have a look at these beautiful, vintage photos of some famous Hollywood actors from 1970’s, such as Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, etc. Most of them are black and white, but there are also some in color technique.
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 hippie movement, the civil rights movement, free love, the growth of rock and roll, changing gender roles and drug use certainly had an impact. And Hollywood was renewed and reborn with the earlier collapse of the studio system, and the works of many new and experimental film-makers (nicknamed “Movie Brats”) during a Hollywood New Wave.
