quires sovcrat days to produco a
That Is tho Idea that David W.
Griffith, tho best known of the direc
tors. Is accused of advancing. It Is
probable that Mr. Griffith did not
mean it would require two or three
days to show a completo picture, but
that the patrons of tho show would
take two or three days to see It.
And this brliiRB up a very Interesting:
prnse of the photoplay.
Much has been snld and much has
been pi luted regarding the purely
llternrv nluc of the film or rather
Hip opportunitv offered to give It
literary aluc. Thore Isn't the slight
est doubt but that motion pictures
nre the means by which literary pro
ductions can be placed entertainingly
and Instructively before more poople
than an other medium. It does not
coat the pffort to spp that It does to
lead. Likewise, while It is only
those afflicted with physlcnl blind
ness who taiinot see. there arp a
nuinbet nf people who cannot read.
Therefore, the value of the screen
to put the fancies of the literary
geniuses before the people seems to
be without limit. Antl it Is Just us
leasonable to suppose that ! man
may tieat a film pioductlon as he
tloes a book see a bit of It today,
lay It aside, antl go at It again to
morrow. A pioduttlon like "The
Hit th of a Nation" should be np
pioached In this wav to get all the
value of Its lesson. It Is too big a
IbliiK to take In at one sitting.
It Is this that Mr Griffith probably
meant when he said people would
take two oi three davs to seo a film
pioduttlon There are many things
of Interest In this particular state
ment of Mr Griffith, however.
Thev nie all contained In his eon
tiihutlon to the highly Interesting
s niposlum The Motion Picture News
Is publishing on tho wpak spots In tho
film business. It Is tho great direc
tor s opinion that the failure n! pro
ducers to realize the possibilities of
their business that Is the weakest
"The trouble with producers," said
Mr Griffith. "Is that they fail to
giasp the Immensity of the art with
which thev aro dealing Anything
on earth tan he reproduced In motion
pUtuies The drama has Its limita
tions but the scope of the motion pic
ture Is absolutely boundless.
"I noticed an article lecently which

etable life Is capab'e of likes and dis
likes Just ns animal life feels those
emotions, according to this article.
Now. that could never be shown on
the stage, hut It can bo In motion
pictures Tho motion picture can
show anv thing from te feelings of
a lettuce up to the growth nnd fall
of ii great empire.
"Every newcomer to the business
finds to his suipilse that he never

even for man who have studied mo

its enormous scope. The stage is not

slble for them to take the time. So

Often a director who can not
'make good' on the one and two reel
pictures which must be turned out
to meet the demands of filling re
lease dates, is set to making feature
pictures. So really his Inefficiency
earns him a promotion to a larger
"Ono great trouble -with the pic
tures pioduced under these conditions
is that they lack a big, vital thought
or lesson Every motion picture
should tench something. People like
to think, and the pictures which they
lemember are the ones which mkko
them think Tho pictures which do
good arc the ones which teach les
