As the 1940s are now over, as well as the close to WWII, there is an abundance of economic prosperity which is clearly displayed in All that Heaven Allows (1955). During the 1950s there was also a rise in consumerism, most of which is due to the invention of the television and other forms of entertainment that gained great popularity. In the romantic drama All that Heaven Allows (1955), Cary Scott, a widowed mother of two pursues a controversial relationship based on true love, despite the traditional conventions of society at the time, the film breaks and defends the status quo of how a woman should function in society, acting as a voice of how women are feeling in the 50s.
