The studio system started to collapse around 1955 or so, with many stars let go from their contracts with the arrival of tv, the de Havilland Law, plus the other law that denied movie studios from owning their own theaters, etc. all being factors that brought about the end of the studio system. There certainly were lots of classics made in the 1960s onward, but it's a different kind of Hollywood from that dramatized in things like "A Star Is Born" (the Judy Garland and Janet Gaynor versions), though I welcome hearing about other actors still around.
