'The Principles of Criticism." Emphasizes the commercial nature of reviewing. Includes discussion of importance of "artistic embellishments" -- i.e.. music and vaudeville (pp. 110-111, 112). Laments that the sophistication of motion pictures detracts from their "primitive strength;" also finds problems in accurately apportioning credit amongst the multiple authors of the motion picture. Outlines the functions of different kinds of motion picture criticism.
