TV shows don't reflect the reality of life in the 1950s. The civil rights movement was just getting started with the Montgomery bus boycott and the Brown vs Topeka decision, fear of nuclear war was omnipresent in American society, and black artists created what white America called "rock and roll."

Rebel Without a Cause
All That Heaven Allows
Peyton Place
The Defiant Ones

Thanks for not answering my question

Your American is different than man, get over it. I look at all people equal, I just like tv and movies that have a wholesome message.

You asked about movies that showed "the mid to late 50's style, " and I DID answer your question by pointing you to quality 50s films.

If you want good 50s TV, check out I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners for classic comedy, or dramas like Perry Mason, M Squad (great cop show with Lee Marvin) and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
