"The moving picture may have

isl to w ih is a p a is m dId eclared Louis K. Anspacher, dramat- I

"The Mob and th Movies."
"Sex and melodrama are the lowest

declared that the moving picture has
a tremendous range, and that it willI
go as far as its audiences will permit
it to go towards art and more artistic
development. With 25 per cent of the
population of our own country unable
to even read the titles, it is small
