Mr. G. A. ATKINSON, ' Seen on the Screen'

on 5XX Daventry

View in Radio Times

MORE than ever in 1928, the movies are one of the symptoms of the way our civilization is going. No longer a crude device, interesting only for its novelty, or a ' trick ' entertainment designed by the intelligent, the cinema as an art and as a cultural force has come to stay ; and its importance as propaganda and as an industry is attracting the serious attention of legislators all over the world.
The films come pouring out of Hollywood in their thousands, and out of the English and Continental studios in their hundreds. No layman can see them all, but no one can afford to miss the significant ones. Hence the importance of listening to Mr. Atkinson's expert and witty reviews of current productions in his fortnightly talks.
