The symbiosis of European and American cultures enabled Hollywood to produce the greatest masterpieces of cinema, as filmmakers from Berlin and Vienna, during the 1930s in particular, brought their know-how and culture, which they adapted to their new environment. German expressionism, psychoanalysis and Viennese humour contributed to film noir, light and serious comedy, melodrama and the Western.
