The article presents the author's comments about the motion picture industry. The author says that man is the only movie making animal and this ability distinguishes him from the lower orders of creation. Hollywood, the motion picture industry of the U.S. has remained loyal to its origins, rebuffing critics of genuine drama. He says that the industry knows that its clientele wants not drama, not even entertainment, but brainwashing. The advocates of the wide screen claim that it will revolutionize the motion picture industry. The author concludes that the motion picture industry might profit by the example of the dinosaurs who became extinct as they couldn't stop growing.
