Q: Before 1910, the most popular form of public entertainment was
A: Since their introduction in 1896, motion pictures have captured the public imagination. [ In recent decades, film has become a significant area of interest to historians examining the role of the movies in North American society and their impact upon modern culture. Film historiography has two major areas of focus. First, much of the historical analysis of motion pictures concentrates
specifically on the commercial movies, the social phenomenon of movie-going, and the development of the motion picture industry in Hollywood. Second, film historians are concerned about the development of the documentary film genre, its sociological origins, its aesthetic, and its wartime role in government propaganda. Yet, both of these sub-fields ignore a significant area of American film history. In the interwar period, the motion picture performed a third social function. Since the late 1910s, while they were steadily becoming the single-most popular form of public entertainment, motion pictures had been simultaneously infiltrating the American school system.1 This use began innocuously as a new type of visual aid not much different, in effect, from the more traditional maps, still photographs, and lantern slides. In the interwar period, the potential contributions of film to education became more apparent and its classroom use more prevalent as the production, distribution, and accessibility of motion pictures increased. With the introduction of the 16mm film projector and sound pictures in the 1920s, and the proliferation of film production organizations into the 1930s, motion pictures became a potentially powerful new educational medium. ]
