Film Scholars,

I need to make connections between the late-1940s-1950s rise of the
consumerist class, the class of the producers/directors of the
musicals/epics/spectaculars of that era, and/or a class explanation
for what appears on screen in the 1950s. I am connecting 1950s class
to cinema production culture and/or screen events. Can you recommend a
book or person to talk to? Was all the musical and spectacular excess
of the period an accurate representation of buying power or
aspirations for future commodity excess?
