Movie stars' voices could now be heard by the millions across hundreds of theaters. Producers were had an incredible amount of revenue so they made more fabulous movies to attract the masses back into the theater. If you film it, they will come.People of the 20's loved to go out and try new things. Sports for the public was a relatively new concept and that was capitalized on by the New York Yankees who built their first stadium in 1923 that could hold 58,000 spectators. Having the right to say you've been to a game at the new Yankee stadium was a huge social boost.People valued quality entertainment with big, well known names, that they could talk to their peers about in order to flaunt the exciting life they had. The more games you went to or the more recent the movie production became the news that everyone around would hear.
