The cinema releases of 1935 were highly representative of the early Golden Age period of Hollywood. This period was punctuated by performances from Judy Garland, Clark Gable and Shirley Temple. A significant number of productions also originated in the UK film industry. It was also a period notable in Soviet Russia for the increasing amount of state control exercised over their film industry.
