Moving Picture Horros
' The Moving Picture Btory, "The Unwelcome Mother," shown at Li
hue Wednesday evening, carried in the main a commendable lesson,
graphically put and well rendered. But that fight aboard the tramp
schooner, and all the repulsive details of inhumanity and crime, were
brutal and revolting to the last degree the kind of thing that gives you
the horrors for a week, and drives you to the conclusion that you will
never go near a moving picture show again. And it was all absolutely
gratuitous, dragged in by the ears, without any necessary connection
with the story, just to shock and offend the decent sensibilities of a long
That sort of thing, perhaps, doesn't affect grown people, of settled
convictions and character, but who can tell what demoralizing and de
grading influence it may have on children and young people, whose con
victions and characters are in the formative stage. We are spending vast
sums of money and a deal of effort in the schools and churches and oth
er educative agencies, in the attempt to humanize and civilize the com
ing generations; wc cant afford to have these efforts neutralized by these
vicious shows that are more or less barnacles on the community anyway,
and which live only by our toleiation a toleration that we ought to
withdraw if they are injurious; and a toleration that we will withdraw.
We have had two very commendable picture shows this last week,
and one that was abominable, unfortunately the one bad one, by a mis
take, was seen by more people than the other two together, and jnany
people who do not usually go, and dp not much believe in moving pic
tures, will be more opposed to them than ever.
As a matter of business purely, it is folly to put on these qbjection
able films. One bad film . alienates more desirable patrons than a dozen
good ones can recover. Over and over again we hear the comment
"Well, the last show I went to was so 'raw' that I made up my mind
not to go any more.
There has been a very general expression of approval of the beauti
ful Travel pictures, and the Industrial and Natural History presentations
which are given us from time to time can't we have more of that sort
of thing, and be relieved of some of this objectionable "yellow" stuff?
Ur, if that is impossible, can t we have the 1 ravel pictures later in
the evening, so that we may stay home through the objectionable and
repulsive, part of it, and come for the part that is good.
e realize that the fault, primarily at least, does not lie with our
local show men, since they have no dimct voice in the selection of the
films that are sent to them, but surely they can voice the condemnation
of the public opinion within their respective circuits, and that perhaps!
in time, will reach the consciousness of the men who make up the pic
A mans first duty to the world about him is to give good measure,
pressed down, and running over, in the line of his vocation, the thing I
he is paid to do, whether that be to manage a plantation or to drive a
mule cart. .
Short measure in the service you are paid for, like short measure
in the goods you are paid for, this is criminal and cannot be atoned for I
by any cheap substitute in the way of pious phrases or generous sub
scriptions. Faithful, honest, efficient work is the first essential of man
hood, and he who fails here hasn't the making of a patriot, a philan
thropist or a Christian.
