Since that time, Petra has first looked to her own life and products she uses to replace them with items she could make herself with the honey and beeswax she had on hand. Eventually, those products made their way into the product line-up for Beehive Alchemy.

This is only the fringe of an argument about which technicians, cineastes, symposial celebrities, and correspondence columnists will in time clamour in earnest conviction and bad journalism.
Only it is strange that they have been so long in starting, and it is desirable that those sincerely interested in the intelligent cinema should consider the aesthetic appropriateness of colour-films before it is too late. Though the classroom film in its varied aspects has been extensively discussed at winter session lectures, the society has been distinguished rather by its practical approach to a problem already somewhat over- burdened by investigation. Special classroom films have been prepared and exhibited in Glasgow schools, and the Committee is at present engaged on a scheme of film work which covers the geography of Scotland.
During the summer, J. Elder, founder of the Society, toured Scotland with a cameraman and covered some three thousand miles in search of material for the Ideal Cinemagazine and the Gaumont Sound Mirror, much of which will also be used for classroom films. Among the other activities of an enterprising society is the organisa- tion of special matinees for children. The annual subscription is 2s. Fraser, Bath Street, Glasgow. Much of the product of amateur groups, if better in technical degree, belongs to the same category of leisure-time activity.
The felicities in this case are the slightly more public, but still very local, felicities of charade. The participants, more often than not, are simply having a good clean time together: seeing themselves act. They are not doing anything especially purposive with their films. The Preston Film Society made a good little film about electricity a year ago for the local electricity people.
The Edinburgh Guild has made a 16 mm. These cases are exceptions. The majority have been pottering about with comedies and dramas, which could not, of course, have any hope of audience outside the family circle. Some of you may wish to qualify this description of amateur intention, for the phrase "experimental cinema" is often used for these efforts.
The suggestion is that behind amateur work there is sometimes the high ambition of making works of art. I think not often, or there would be more documentaries among the amateurs and fewer dramas. By the very nature of the case, the necessary limitations of amateur work the lack of studio, laboratory, not to mention thespian facilities make the studio grade far more difficult than the documentary grade. And there is good reason to believe that if the intention were really experimental the amateurs would choose that particular field in which experiment is a practical possibility.
We must conclude that the amateurs have been playing themselves. Cinema, if inferior to golf, is as fair and expensive a way as most of spending Saturday afternoons. It is true, however, that many amateurs would welcome an opportunity of turning their film sense to public uses : and it must be the first job of any movement in the 1 6 mm.
This is the thesis of the present article. Serving a definite end is, among other things, a very important incentive in the making of films : far more important than the vague and almost always false incentive of "making art. It is a trophy obtained, by the grace of one or other of the gods, in the fervent pursuit of something else. In any case, the definite end is a salutary discipline. It dictates the theme. It dictates the treatment. It dictates lucidity and length. It provides an audience and, gen- erally, a critical audience.
For all these gifts the amateur should be grateful. There are two other very important considerations. The definite end may also supply the cash, as happened with the Preston Film Society, the Glasgow educational group, and, I believe, with one of the efforts of the Edinburgh Film Guild. There are other examples to be found in the technical colleges, research laboratories, and the mines and factories. Amateur work has, in such cases, been put on an economic basis. The second important consideration is that the definite end gives amateur film production a growing point. It ties it up with the life of the community and gives it status as a social activity.
It supplies the continuing support necessary to development. Inspiration continuing inspiration , regarding theme and treat- ment are not associates, on the more romantic theories, with the cold-blooded purposes of a public end ; but, on any evidence, you will find it so. Art, or call it creation, generally involves a mastery of raw material and there is nothing like having the raw material forced upon it. It is then that the imagination has to dig in and find things ; and there is no better way of discovering that element of surprise miracle, call it which is a necessary quality of art than by taking it from what seems unpromising material.
Anyone knows that birds, trees, hills, lakes, sunsets, etc. But to dive into a factory, or dive into a slum, is a more adventurous business. And to make a good clean job of a teaching film on the Southern Uplands of Scotland is a more adventurous business still. Just to select those twenty or thirty or fifty shots from all the activities involved which will say your say about it, and make it an analytical or poetic or dramatic say, is something that no one has done before you.
You are not asked to seek difficulty for the sake of difficulty or to despise the good subjects which lie to hand. Even the easier and more romantic subjects spring on the hills, for example will bear a new and fresh description. The main point is that amateurs should not be ashamed of the subjects which educational or industrial or civic or other propaganda organisations are liable to present to them. It is good to remember that Leonardo, Michelangelo, and El Greco were all paid propagandists.
A consequence of this argument is that purposive amateurs should devote themselves to documentary and be done with it. That is where the educational and propaganda work lies; and, as already suggested, that is where amateur work is likely to find its highest level. For the sake of convenience it is good to remember the main divisions of documentary work.
There are three schools. The first is the newsreel or popular journalist school. It calls its pictures " interest" pictures, because it only takes from the subject what it knows and any fool will agree to be interesting. If in the village of Cuckold's Green the parson's whiskers are six inches longer than any other parson's, and the village idiot can waggle his ears faster and wider than any other village idiot, that is its sufficient gambit for a description of English village life.
In its more soulful moments it takes to scenics and conjures ham and egg effects from sunsets: red filter, F8 or thereabouts. The second school is the Flaherty school, a deeper affair altogether. It is exotic in its material. It is concerned with native life, native manners, native philosophies, but only with natives who wander on halcyon isles or battle against epic horizons. It does not regard the unemployed of Coatbridge as natives.
If it impinges on the modern school it is in recherche du temps perdu. It will teach you all you need to know about shooting the simpler communities, and will tell you better than any how to make natural phenomena drape themselves into a continuing story. It deals entirely with industrial and modern material. All its films are made under educational or propaganda auspices, and are so financed.
Its method of treatment varies. It is sometimes impressionist, sometimes symphonic, sometimes analytical; but it avoids both the personal story and the discursive. It is concerned to build up mass descriptions and build a theme out of its sequence of mass descriptions. On the technical side it deals in tempos, rhythms, images. Deprived of the journalistic reference of the newsreel method and the romantic appeal of the Flaherty method, it is concerned to find the sociological implications of its subject matter.
They will provide a necessary academic grounding and prevent a great deal of lost labour and enthusiasm. In so far as amateur work is directed to public uses, the Flaherty example will be found useful in some cases for Travel Association purposes, for example ; but in the main the modern school will be found more useful.
Here you must watch carefully, for these tempos and rhythms and things are all too theoretically fascinating and at the level of discussion all too "arty" for practical guidance. They may easily land you in abstract sequences which are anything but purposive in their total effect. They are, after all, only the means by which you make your material interesting : they do not of themselves create a theme or story for that material. Even in documentary the play's the thing. Or, as the case may be, the lesson, the message, is the thing.
Indeed there is now some considerable sign that the more complex documentary effects as in Berlin, for example are passing out of favour. A simpler, quieter, less "musical' 1 and more pur- posive treatment is taking its place. Where the tale is a simple one, better tell it and let the effects look after themselves, and not vice versa. This will both recommend you to your educational or industrial or civic sponsors and give you a first right step towards effective work.
Amateurs, when they are ambitious, tend to be too ambitious by half. When they turn pro- fessional, it takes two years to de-theorise and decomplicate them. They are too proud to be simple. This is spoken from laborious experience. Such advice in hand, what are the direct possibilities?
In the first place, there is a vast "bringing alive" service to be performed: a very valuable line of approach to development associations, city councils, steamship companies, travel associations. They all want to see their particular blob of territory alive and kicking on the screen, and there is no reason why the amateurs should not do it for them. They can do it cheaper than professionals and may often, with local knowledge, local enthusiasm, and a higher critical under- standing of cinema, do it better. Many sections of the country: villages, counties, industrial communities, seaside resorts, stretches of mountain and coast, hiking circuits, have their descriptive story to tell; and there are traders' organisations, civic organisations, to whose interest it is that the story should be told.
The rest is a matter of business, and every amateur group should have a member who can do business. The number of 16 mm. It may even be shot on 35 for the wider audience 35 mm. Elder in charge of practicals. The Glasgow amateur group has set itself a programme of teaching films for the Glasgow curriculum, joining up thereby their film work with their professional work. Every other major educational authority requires a similar scheme, and amateur groups should press them- selves into their service.
Curricula differ across the country, and it is good that they should. Indeed, no matter what films are forth- coming from London libraries they cannot hope to fulfil local requirements. Directors of education are sensitive on this point and will listen to you. Be careful, however, to concentrate on local requirements, or you may be cutting across the production plans of the production centres in London which will, necessarily, be dealing with the wider themes.
The educational film field cannot yet afford any tendency to overlapping. A third line of approach will be found in connection with local hospitals and departments of public health. The churches and Y. The publicity required by industrial concerns, both inside and outside the factories, suggests yet another. There is really no limit to the clients available to 16 mm. Only one warning is necessary. They will have to prove the availability of an audience, before they can raise money for their efforts.
In the educational field, and in cases where films are made for use by salesmen or for showing to employees, there is, of course, no difficulty. In other cases the 16 mm. There is every sign in London that, if the films are available, audiences will be found on a national scale. Audiences on local scale can be left to the devices of the local groups. They will not have learned their job as film people, if they cannot publicise their wares. In no country, save perhaps Japan, are the traditions and practice of the stage so deeply embedded in the producer's mind.
With what gusto they announce an actor who is from the Comedie Francaise! The music- hall also has a considerable influence, and the Leslie Fuller and Ernest Lotinga tradition is very closely paralleled in the French programme picture. Technically, however, they are far behind Britain. Cutting is even less appreciated at Joinville than at Elstree. The tempo of films is dull and demonstrates a lack of movie sense.
The stage has had its influence in a superabundance of dialogue. A shot of five hundred feet, in which the confines of the screen become the sides of a stage, is not uncommon. But in set design, and costume they excel, and though the stories are bad and the method of telling them crude, there is very rarely anything offensive to eye or ear. The French have a greater sensibility than any other nation.
Certainly their artistic sense is much better developed. Perhaps the roots of this can be found in the higher standard of education. The experimental cinema that was such a vital and interesting part of French movie has almost passed away. The ci-devant intellectuals have sold their souls down the Champs Elysees.
Cavalcanti, Dreville, Feyder, Epstein, L'Herbier, are all working in the factories at Joinville turning out the programme picture. The only one who has carried any of his virtues to Joinville is Epstein, the erstwhile protagonist of French documentary. His last film shown publicly, Hispano, did show some feeling for people and a nice sense of timing. He managed to obtrude a lighthouse to give it the Epstein signature.
Cavalcanti is making Coralle et Cie, in 26 which Catherine Hessling has a small part. Jean Dreville, documen- tary producer, turns Trois per cent. Eugene Deslaw, one of the earliest abstract film-makers, is among the few who have resisted the lure of the Big Time. He is making a documentary of La Cite Universitaire. In an interview he said : " I was tired of the world, with its depressions and crises. It held no hope. But here among the young students I have found gaiety, health, and optimism, a belief in ideals.
That is the spirit of my film. Titles will be used with a musical commentary, a synthesis of national songs typifying the cosmopolitan atmosphere of this university. Rene Clair, silent for so long, has been working on a shooting script for a new film based on his own story. Conditions of the story and the wishes of Tobis decided the making of the picture in Berlin. Unfortunately under the Nazi regime certain regulations had to be complied with and Clair was asked to make modifications to the film. He refused, and temporarily the film has been shelved.
In an interview with Comcedia, Douglas Fairbanks said that he hoped Clair would direct a picture for his new company. Nothing has developed, and Clair is still idle. It is difficult to assess his position to-day. Over a year has passed since A Nous la Liberie. In that film he demonstrated his lack of social consciousness and his inability to face a social problem.
Instead he produced a vague Rousseauesque philosophy. Unless Clair can show us that he is willing to tackle social themes, his films will remain as they always have been, pleasant exercises in movie technique. Sous les Toits de Paris was his best film, because he was definitely interested in the lives of people at that time. Unques- tionably he- is the best producer in France, but we want to know how he is facing up to the new problems, what use he is making of new ideas, and most importantly, whether he will remain a producer of burlesque and musical comedy or whether he has the courage to face movie themes.
The most sizeable figure working in France to-day is V. You will remember him as an unambitious producer of such pictures as Volga-Volga and The White Devil. He has learnt a lot since then and his latest picture, L'Ordannance, puts him in the front rank. It is adapted from a de Maupassant story and has been directed with a magnificent economy of shots giving it the starkness of real drama. In the middle the film tends to lose balance, too much emphasis being laid on matters immaterial to the logical development of the story.
Music has been very skilfully woven into the film in a symbolic but never obtrusive fashion. Tourjansky will do even bigger things when he ceases to use his camera truck in a pointless manner and when he can curb his embarrassing tendency to overemphasise the mood of a scene with symbolical settings. The 27 period is about the time of Nana, an atmosphere the French know so well how to recreate. Miss Cohen of the Academy tells me it may be shown in England. It is the best sound film exposition of the naturalistic approach to cinema. The Nazi persecution of the German film producers is likely to benefit the French cinema.
Lang, Pommer, Pabst, Ophuls, and a host of others are working in Paris. It is too early yet to see any of the films they are making, but the grafting of German technique on the French school will certainly create films of interest. The introduc- tion of the German technicians will undoubtedly improve the technical deficiences of the French cinema.
How the film melting- pot will assimilate the French esprit and the German soul exploration is a matter for conjecture. Preserve us from introspective musicals or comedies of the subconscious! Sound is used in counterpoint to image and not as exposition. The content is entirely documentary. All sorts of ruses were resorted to in order to photograph the people without their knowledge. A naturalness and naivete, which can only be achieved in this way, is the result.
An intimate little cinema, seating , luxuriously furnished and decorated in the modern manner, is about to be opened in Baltimore by Hermann G. Weinberg, whose policy is to show only European films and those American films which because of their artistic merit when they occur! In both of these, Radakiewicz achieved striking photographic effects.
The Face of New England furthers the melodramatic quality of his photography. The film is divided into four moods: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. The particular atmosphere and detail of New England environs is inter- 28 preted in its seasonal flux. Radakiewicz works with great patience to obtain exact photographic values. Almost a full year has been spent on the picture and only half of it has been completed. If it is mounted as well as it is photographed, The Face of New England will undoubtedly be an important contribution to film art. Lewis Jacobs. The studios have been "purged" of "non- Aryans" and those who do not support the Nazi regime, and such international figures as Erich Pommer, G.
Others, such as Emil Jannings, Werner Krauss, Marlene Dietrich, and Lilian Harvey are at present abroad and are likely to be affected by a new decree which will exclude from working in Germany all who make contracts to go abroad or who renew their present contracts outside of Germany — thereby "retardingfthe work of cultural reconstruction.

Fugitives, directed by Gustav Ucicky, is an attack on Bolshevism and deals with the fate of the Volga Germans who fled out of Russia at the Revolution. Charles de Keukelaire, director of Combat de Boxe and Lourdes, is in charge of the photography. Maurice Dembrain has made a folklore film of the Ath Fair — La Danse des Grants — which endeavours to bring out the curious rhythm of the popular feasts and the reaction they create on the people. The Belgian cinema appears to be turning in a decidedly national direction. No doubt the English copy suffered from his attentions, yet there was in it so much falseness and stupidity that we must be allowed to question whether the original had ever anything more to recommend it than an intermittently pleasant air of bawdry.
Pierre Louys 5 novel, Les Aventures du Roi Pausole, introduces us to the country of Trypheme, where complete sexual liberty is established. King Pausole, however, is a prey to indecision, and has therefore assigned the control of his household to the puritanical Taxis. The story tells how the Princess Aline leaves the court with Mirabelle, a Lesbian, and how Pausole sets forth in search of her.
The rule of Taxis is successfully challenged by the page, Giglio, and Pausole is at last convinced that freedom must be the property even of his wives and daughter. The novel has its niche in literature as a picture of licentiousness carried to its logical conclusion and as a setting for the genuinely and humanly amusing character of Pausole. The film of The Merry Monarch has neither logic nor characterisation. It is worth con- sidering here only because of its "artistic" pretensions.
Four notable changes are made in the screen translation: i Mirabelle is, inevitably, no longer a Lesbian; yet she un- necessarily appears on about three occasions.
There are other discrepancies of this kind, and at least one serious gap in the narrative. Presumably the censor has been at work, but if the film were deemed worth showing in its cut version, then it would also have been worth while to refashion it as a coherent unity.
Still photograph by Cyril Stanborough. The film is notable tor the photography of Fred Young and the set design of L. His character, however, is ruined by the attempted serious delinea- tion of his love affair with Aline. This is after Pausole and Diane have been lost at sea, being unable to locate Trypheme because it does not appear on any of the world's maps. An interesting addition, but introduced and disposed of far too perfunctorily. The king of The Merry Monarch is merely a bon viveur; the king of Les Aventures du Roi Pausole is the one character in the book who is created in the reader's own image.
The puppet- performances that come from English and American, and now German, studios make us more than ever willing to see a film of human character. Here was a great opportunity. For the last three of these changes the censor cannot be held responsible. The Merry Monarch has been praised for the agreeable patterns of its camera-work, but the director has apparently no eye for significant detail.
His obtuseness in this respect is revealed notably in the flat filming of the ballet : not a single detail is brought out by camera position or angle. An attention to significant detail, however, pre- supposes a respect for one's subject-matter. And it seems impossible that anyone could feel respect for the mixture of crudity and con- ventionality that is The Merry Monarch. This ambiguity has an important effect on Mr.
Read's conclusion, "The film of imagination. If by "poet" he means the maker of verse, or even of literature generally, several other interesting points are raised. There seems to be no particular reason why the sentence quoted above should not run, "The film of imagination will not come until the musician enters the studio"; or the painter; or the sculptor. Read says that literature is visual; but is not this at least equally the case with painting and sculpture?
But let us examine this contention a little more closely. Read says that the "single aim' : of literature is "to convey images by means of words. This is a rather remarkable conclusion. Thus, for example, when Milton wrote, "On his crest sat horror plumed, nor wanted in his grasp what seemed both spear and shield," he was writing very bad poetry, for he described things quite impossible to visualise. Thus, numerous sonnets of Shake- speare, large parts of Milton and Wordsworth, and many others, are not poetry at all, for they make no attempt at all to convey images, but are concerned with reflection or philosophy.
Thus, Walter de la Mare, when he wrote, "Dusk on the windless casement weaves a labyrinth of flowers," would have been much better advised to express himself in some such manner as this: "C. Dusk is falling outside, and the evening is perfectly calm. In speeded-up motion, frost-patterns back-lit by the remains of light outside appear on the window-panes.
Read will doubtless interpose that, although my scene from an imaginary film scenario is clear and accurate, it is not vivid; it does not immediately call up in the mind the image it describes, but the mind has, of its own volition and with some effort, to construct the image. To this I reply that vividness is not its business; and, therefore, that even according to Mr. Read's definition the scenario is not literature.
But if the scenario is not literature, how can the film have any connection with literature? Read, is the object of literature; it is also, in a somewhat different sense, the object of the scenario; but it is certainly not the object of the film. The film is the images, and they stand in need of no conveyance except a purely physical one. If literature uses words to convey images, the film uses images to convey whatever lies behind them.
But in that case the conveyance of images is not an end in itself, and therefore literature is merely the film at second-hand. According to Mr. Read's definition, then, it seems that Homer 34 and Shakespeare and all the rest have been merely composing scenarios for unproduced films, and that the invention of the film camera must eventually abolish literature altogether.
This seems to me to be an unsatisfactory position. Another point on which I would welcome a little further enlightenment is his definition of technique. Beethoven began composing at the age of eleven, and his technique, according to all the best authorities, was continually progressing up to within a few years of his death. But Mr. Read says that most techniques can be learnt in a few days, or at most in a year or two. We can hardly assume that Beethoven was unusually slow-witted, so that Mr.
Read must be using the word "technique" in a different sense. Indeed, this must be so, for he speaks as if there was only one technique for each art. Yet one says, for example, that Manet's technique differs from Picasso's, as if each artist had a technique of his own. I should be greatly obliged to Mr.
Read if he would assist me here. But in any case, Mr. Read's statement that "no amount of technical efficiency will create a work of art if the imaginative genius is lacking," proves nothing; for it is equally true that no amount of imaginative genius will create a work of art if the technical efficiency is lacking.
With the exception of these few points I am in complete agree- ment with Mr. Read's article. Dalton for giving me an opportunity of making myself clearer on one or two points in my rather impromptu article on "The Poet and the Film" — it was originally delivered as a speech. I do, of course, use "poet" in the wider sense, and not merely as a maker of verse. This may reduce my observation to a truism, but I think there is a distinction to be made between poetic imagination or fancy and what I would call prosaic ingenuity or invention, and my only purpose in using the rather doubtful word "creative" was to imply this distinction.
Once that distinction is admitted, I think there is some sense in saying that "the film of imagination. What I should have written was "primary" or "element- ary. Just as poetry has elaborated this 35 elementary aim during the many centuries of its development, so, no doubt, the film will elaborate its elementary aim — which is, nevertheless, still the same as the aim of poetry — to convey images, but by visual and not aural means. The distinction Mr.
Dalton tries to draw between the scenario and the film is surely irrelevant, as though we were to try and distinguish between the words of the poem and the images they express. I am not so sure that Homer and Shakespeare and all the rest did not compose scenarios for unproduced films, but the fact that their scenarios are, incidentally, literature should relieve Mr. Dalton of any anxiety he feels for the future of literature.
My remarks on technique were perhaps a little extreme, but I did guard myself by saying "most" techniques, and whilst that might include everything, from learning to ride a bicycle to producing a film, it might still exclude Beethoven. The sense in which I use the word 'technique" is the strict one. To speak of Manet's technique as differing from Picasso's, or of each painter having a technique of his own, is merely an inexact use of the word. In such cases it is not the technique that differs, but the use made of it. Hoppe, in his introduction to Modern Photography London: Studio.
At last the legitimate sphere of photography has been recognised, and the current volume is exciting evidence of the vigour and effective- ness of pure photography. The camera eye differs from the human both in range of vision and mensuration of perspective, and it is the exploitation of these differences in revealing the hidden beauty of the commonplace that gives the new realism its artistic authenticity. Imagism, mastery of technique, and absence of sentimentalism are the keynotes of the collection, which contains examples from all over the world.
Can it be a still latent sentimentalism, however, which prolongs the life of the professional model and the carefully posed "artistic studies in the nude" which appear even in this volume? Though beautifully produced with the Studio's customary car it is a pity all the photographs did not receive the full value of 1 and white instead of being printed in various tints. Alike in promise and performance the news is imposing. Douglas Fairbanks has decided to make London his headquarters for future film production and his move, which is to be followed by other notable screen personalities, is a further indication of the decline of Hollywood and the growing importance of Britain as a world film centre.
The films to be produced in this country in alliance with London Film Produc- tions and distributed in America through United Artists will inevitably add to the prestige of the British film abroad. There is great promise also in the new Gaumont-British programme: Red Ensign, a story of the shipyards, is being designed as a tribute to the Merchant Service ; Northbound is to describe the life of the men w r ho sail in the Arctic; Cecil Rhodes will give an impression of Empire building; Men Without Work will, plainly, have a social theme; and Mary Queen of Scots will make an interesting contribution to the growing group of historical pictures.
With projects such as these announced, the progress of the British film becomes something to be followed with lively expectation. In performance also Britain's record is worthy of more note than usual. In addition to the latter film, Korda has made The Girl from Maxim's, a witty adaptation of a lighthearted French farce, with lovely photography by Georges Perinal. Bitter Sweet, while not adding anything to the stage version, is distinguished by its pictorial quality and its sense of showmanship. And the growing enterprise of British producers is represented by The Fire Raisers by Michael Powell, brought to the screen while its theme is still front page news.
There has been a tendency in the studios to look backward into history for film themes. If all of those pictures are as sincere and successful as the Henry VIII film cinemas will benefit in colour and glamour from this renewed interest in the past. There is a regrettable tendency in these new movie-revues to make capital of the depression. Two of them are almost identical in their final numbers, and both, with equal lack of taste, have the American unemployed worker and the "bread line" as their theme.
One is called Dusty Feet and the other Forgotten Man. America's cinema of the quarter has followed familiar lines. Dinner at Eight and Tugboat Annie are exaggerated products of the star system. Another Language and Accidents Wanted reveal a continued dependance on the stage for material. Apart from Laurel and Hardy, whose methods are growing familiar, the comedians have been strangely silent, and we have heard nothing from Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Jimmy Durante, and the Marx Brothers.
