Influence of screen

Responding to a complaint: We are in the midst of an extreme situation created by the sudden and (one might say) violent popularity of sound. ... [W]e shall ultimately find that certain types of stories which lend themselves best to reproduction with dialogue will be shown on the screen that way, while other stories will continue to be produced in pantomime with musical accompaniment."
