  1930s Summary
The 1930s represented one of the most significant periods of reform legislation in the history of the United States.

The 1930s were fundamentally and irrevocably shaped by the stock-market crash on 29 October 1929.

  Langston Hughes in the 1930s
In this view, Hughes's 1930s efforts in many different genres--including short and long fiction, poetry, drama, reportage, song writing--largely sounded over and over the same ham-fisted didactic note, lacking the lyric humanism and folk wit of his work in the 1920s, 1940s, and 1950s.
But it is unquestionably true that Hughes's participation in the Left increased astronomically during the 1930s and had a marked impact on the form and content (to use a favorite phrase of Left cultural critics of that time) of Hughes's poetry.
In this regard, it is ironic that with the plethora of critical discussions of the trope of the trickster and his or her linguistic polysemy, virtually none examine the work of Hughes, and certainly none consider his revolutionary poetry in this manner.

 Nutria
The South American nutria became a subject of interest in the fur industry back in the early 1930s when their large size and high reproductive potential held promise for fur farming businesses in North America.
Many of these farms, however, did not succeed and the animals either escaped or were intentionally released to the wild, which resulted in the wild populations present today.
Wild nutria were first reported in Oregon during the 1930s, including colonies along the Nestucca, Columbia, and Willamette Rivers in western Oregon, and the Umatilla and Grande Ronde Rivers east of the Cascades.

 Airminded · 1930s
Evacuee (from the French evacué) is a word still in use which appears to derive from directly from preparations for air attack in the 1930s; the first use in The Times is from 1938, in the aftermath of Munich.
There were plenty of novels dealing with this subject written in the 1920s and 1930s, at least as it related to aerial warfare.
The Nationalist version of Guernica — that it wasn’t bombed by fascist aircraft, but instead set alight by the Basque defenders themselves — was not widely accepted at the time, but for decades afterwards it was still plausible enough for some people to believe.

 Film History of the 1930s
The 1930s decade (and most of the 1940s as well) has been nostalgically labeled "The Golden Age of Hollywood" (although most of the output of the decade was fl-and-white).
The 30s was also the decade of the sound and color revolutions and the advance of the 'talkies', and the further development of film genres (gangster films, musicals, newspaper-reporting films, historical biopics, social-realism films, lighthearted screwball comedies, westerns and horror to name a few).
Special-effects processes were advanced by the late 1930s, making it possible for many more films to be shot on sets rather than on-location (e.g., The Hurricane (1937) and Captains Courageous (1937).) In 1937, the Disney-produced Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was the first feature-length animated film - a milestone.

Hollywood has maintained a consistent grip on the worldwide imagination, and European film, British movies and Bollywood have all been in the limelight, while entertaining their own audiences.
The fashion in Hollywood stars has also changed over the years - from the first global stars in the 1930s, through the glamorous 1950s and grittier 1970s, to today's actors and actresses and their love-hate relationship with the media.
And throughout it all the Oscars have been a marker for the state of cinema, usually rewarding movies, actors and directors for what have gone on to be lasting achievements.
