Films of the 1950s were of a large genre. The decade was equally adept at both character and realistic films. During the immediate post-war years the cinematic industry was also threatened by television. The demise of the "studio system" spurred the self-commentary of films like Sunset Boulevard (1950). The studios and companies would find new and innovative ways to bring audiences back in theaters. They used new techniques in presenting their movie through widescreen and come near methods, such as Cinemascope, VistaVision, and Cinerama. Big production and spectacle films perfect for this gained popularity, with the many historic and fantasy epics. Some of the most successful examples of these Biblical and historical spectaculars include The Ten Commandments (1956), The Vikings (1958), Ben-Hur (1959), and Spartacus (1960). As a result of unconsumed discharge, the science fiction genre began its golden age during this decade. In the U.S., a post-WW2 tendency toward questioning the establishment and societal norms and the early activism of the civil rights movement was reflected in Hollywood films such as Blackboard Jungle (1955), On the Waterfront (1954), Marty (1955) and 12 Angry Men (1957). Television began competing seriously with films projected in theatres, but surprisingly it promoted more filmgoing rather than curtailing it.
