Introduction 

FILM DAILY, the pioneer daily newspaper of 
the dynamic industry of the screen, is happy 
to present its 1937 PRODUCT GUIDE and DI- 
RECTORS ANNUAL, a mid-year supplement 
and little brother to the YEAR BOOK of MO- 
TION PICTURES, considered everywhere as 
the standard reference work of the industry. 
The pages that follow primarily concern them- 
selves with production, the fountain head of 
the industry. Its wealth of statistical informa- 
tion, its Who's Who in Production, its biogra- 
phical data and its comprehensive array of 
pertinent production facts are so arranged to 
meet the informative needs of the busy execu- 
tive in every branch of pictures. To those, from 
every spoke of the great picture wheel, whose 
help made the following pages possible, the 
editor extends sincere thanks and appreci- 
ation.

WINNER 

ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE 

ARTS AND SCIENCES 

SPECIAL AWARD FOR 

"Its significancetomotion pictures 
and for having revolutionized one 
of the most important branches in 
the industry — the newsreel." 





Production 

It is not necessary here to argue the case 
for motion pictures. 

We cannot expect with words to tell ade- 
quately of the progress that has been made, 
and daily is being made, in this art. 

The pictures speak for themselves on the 
screens of the world. The public must be our 
judge. That is proper. 

Of the expressions of public approval we 
can be proud. They give us encouragement 
and spur our efforts. 

To those responsible for this advancement 
we all owe thanks and gratitude.

A SUMMATION OF THE VIEWS OF CRITICAL AMERICA, 
FROM THE FIFTH ANNUAL FORUM 



AN analytical and statistical digest of the fifth annual Critics' Forum, con- 
ducted by THE FILM DAILY. 

The consensus of critical opinion reflects the varied viewpoints of the 
reviewers, editors and columnists on representative American newspapers, both 
large and small, who to the number of 1,500 were invited to participate. 

I. INDUSTRY REQUIREMENTS 

What do you consider the most urgent need of the motion picture 
industry? 

BETTER writing and better story material are the most urgent industry needs according to 16 per 
cent of the critics. Another eight per cent believe original story material is the major re- 
quirement for better films. Thus, nearly a fourth of the film critics believe more attention 
of one sort or another should be given scripts. 

A plea for elimination of dual feature programs was next on the critics' "urgent needs" list, 
with seven per cent advocating the end of this practice. Better pictures were suggested in six 
per cent of the answers and another six per cent favored more "A" pictures and fewer "B" films. 
Among other suggestions most mentioned by the the critics were: Better short subjects; orig- 
inality and independence; three-dimensional films; more features with color; more comedies; 
relaxation of censorship; elimination of Bank Night and giveaways, honest publicity; less featuring 
of foreign players; better sound reproduction; fewer pictures; and players with acting ability 
instead of just "looks." 

II. RADIO COMPETITION 

Do you believe that radio appearances of motion picture players 
help or hurt? 

THAT radio appearances help is the opinion of 40 per cent of the critics. Eighteen per cent 
think that they hurt. Program material and radio ability of the individual must be considered 
according to 17 per cent while eight per cent believe there is no effect from radio appearance. 
Some reviewers believe that radio helps the player but hurts the boxoffice or that radio helps 
newcomers to establish themselves but hurts the already well-known players. 

III. THE PERFECT PROGRAM

What do you consider the make-up of the ideal program to be? 

RITICS were overwhelmingly in favor of a single feature, short subjects and newsreel. Most 
repeated "squawk" of the motion picture editors and reviewers was against the dual 
feature policy.

You're Turning Away 

E-TENTH OF YOUR AUDIENCE 




— unless you're welcoming the deaf 
in the same way as Radio City Music Hall 

Thousands of exhibitors have found that welcoming 
the deaf with Theatrephones increases box-office receipts 
by 10% or more — draws the deaf and their friends from 
neighborhoods usually outside the market of the theatre. 
That's because one in every ten is hard of hearing — and 
cannot enjoy "the talkies" without the help of some com- 
pensating aid. Tlie Acousticon Theatreplione is energized 
directly from your sound system, permits deafened mem- 
bers of your audience to hear clearly and easily by a 
combination of bone and air conduction. It is operating 
now in thousands of theatres from houses seating as few 
as 500 to Radio City Music Hail. Ask for exploitation 
data today.

IV. ADVANCES IN 1936 



In what respect do you consider pictures made the greatest advance- 
ment during 1936? 

IMPROVEMENT in color — technically and in usage — was the greatest motion picture advance- 
ment in 1936 according to the film editors. More than 22 per cent were in agreement on this. 
Improvements in the selection, handling and attention to stories rated second with 18 per cent 
of the critics' votes. Following in order were: Better photography, better direction, improved his- 
torical pictures, better sound, "quality" pictures, use of literary classics, use of timely story mate- 
rial, development of comedies, adaptations of stage plays, adaptations of musicals from the stage, 
better acting, better screen musicals, improvement in moral tone, technically, projection, educa- 
;ionally, and better musical scores for dramas. 



V. PUBLICITY'S STATUS 



As a motion picture columnist, which is your principal source of 
material: Studio publicity, news services, copy supplied by theaters, 
trade press? 

MOST of the motion picture writers use more than one of the sources. Studio publicity and 
news services are used by more than the others, each polling 36 per cent of the critics. 
Copy supplied by theaters is used by 31 per cent and trade press material by 17 per cent 
of the critics. In addition, many of them dig up copy from original sources. 



s 



Do you believe the past year saw an improvement in studio publicity? 

TUDIO publicity did improve during 1936 according to 55 per cent of the critics. No improve- 
ment was seen by 31 per cent. 



Can these services be improved, and how? 

HEADING this list of suggested improvements was a plea for less "tripe," "bull," "baloney," 
"bunk," etc. Following was a more specific request for personalized service from studio 
publicity departments. Other suggestions were: Fewer superlatives; mere items written as 
news stories; more and better stills and photographs; more shorts for fillers; more factual stories; 
more mats and a better variety of sizes; less volume; more human interest material; more "low- 
down" items on players and pictures; more "leg" art; less emphasis on company and trade names 
and more on player personalities; less obvious advertising in items; localized releases; elimination 
of "fake" accidents, engagements, etc.; stories and statistics on the making of pictures; and elim- 
ination of trifles and gossip. 

VI. STELLAR MATERIAL 
What secondary players do you feel deserve a chance at stardom? 

MORE than 200 players were mentioned by the critics for elevation to stardom. The 25 most 
mentioned were: Walter Brennan, Ray Milland, Mischa Auer, Gale Sondergaard, Akim 
Tamiroff, Dorothy Lamour, Fay Bainter, Katherine de Mille, Isabel Jewell, Eric Blore, Bob 
Burns, Joseph Calleia, Colin Clive, Walter Connolly, James Ellison, Alice Faye, Hugh Herbert, Frieda 
Inescourt, Frank Morgan, Reginald Owen, Gail Patrick, Mickey Rooney, Claude Rains, Claire Trevor 
and Roland Young. 

Among others mentioned as star material were: Don Ameche, Jean Arthur, Annabella; Asta 
(dog); Henry Armetta, Elizabeth Allan, Fred Astaire — alone, Brian Aherne.

only 1 1 per cent voted affirmatively, with 1 1 per cent taking no stand.

IX. FORMULA FOR CRITICISM 



Do you believe that a motion picture reviewer should express purely 
a personal viewpoint or do you think audience reaction should be 
taken into consideration? 

WHEN this question was asked in the 1932 Forum, 80 per cent of the critics held out for their 
personal viewpoints. The latest results show that 32 per cent now believe in the personal 
viewpoint, 35 per cent believe audience reaction should be the judging yardstick and 22 
per cent believe reviews should be a combination of both audience reaction and personal viewpoint. 



X. MAJOR SQUAWKS 



Squawk Department: We all have our pet squawks and ideas. Ex- 
change of viewpoints never hurt anyone, so talk freely. 

DUAL features were the most complained at aspect of motion pictures. The reviewers were 
almost unanimous in denouncing the policy. Other repeated "squawks" were aimed at: 
Mishandling and casting of players; lack of courage in production; weak short subjects; 
commercial pictures; noisy theater patrons; too many trailers; lack of fresh plot in films; publicity 
material and press books; detail inaccuracies and roadshows.

• • MORE FEATURES AND LARGER BUDGETS HIGHLIGHT THE 
1937-1938 PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS 



By CHESTER B. BAHN 
Editor, THE FILM DAILY 

THE American film year, 1937-38, on the basis of production and releasing schedules announced 
by both major companies and independents will be distinguished by: 

First, an increase in the number of features. Schedules announced one year ago called 
for a total of 942 features; the new season's total is 974. The increase is essentially due to the 
smaller companies and importation of foreign language pictures. Last year, the minimum total for 
the eight majors was 429, this year, 424. English language features for 1937-38 total 805, including 
23 revivals; foreign language features number 169. For the previous year, there were 847 Eng- 
lish language features, only 95 in a foreign tongue. 

Secondly, a relatively marked gain in the number of million dollar productions, with 37 pic- 
tures definitely budgeted at that figure or more and the prospect that the number will be still higher 
before the year does an exit. 

Generally speaking, and among the majors in particular, there is a trend towards increased 
spending. Specifically, Paramount has advanced its budget $10,000,000 over the 1936-37 figure, and 
RKO Radio has jumped its budget $3,500,000. The trend finds further manifestation in United 
Artists' announced $26,000,000 budget, the $15,000,000 allotted by Columbia, and Monogram's 25 
per cent budget tilt. 

Significant, too, in this respect are such factors as Warners' investment of $5,000,000 in story 
properties, Metrc-Goldwyn-Mayer's emphasis upon plans to make stories of the magnitude and 
importance of "The Great Ziegfeld," "Good Earth" and "Romeo and Juliet," United Artists' proposal 
to make 10 pictures in Technicolor and Pararnount's allocation of 20 pictures in the million dollar 
category. 

Indeed, if the spending trend gathering impetus this year is not sidetracked, the American 
industry seems headed for still more costly productions in the immediate future. It is a sign o' 
the times that United Artists has one $2,000,000 pix and four $1,500,000 features listed for 1937-38. 

Scanning further the American statistical horizon, a decline in the number of shorts, exclusive 
of newsreels, and a slight increase in the number of serials is disclosed. For 1936-37, 967 shorts 
were announced as against 909 for 1937-38. Here again the greater loss is in the indie field, 
the eight majors listing 720 for this season as against 741. 

An analysis of production schedules reveals a musical cycle definitely taking shape. Para- 
mount promises a record number of musicals, Metro has four musicals set and six others are 
possible, 20th Century-Fox plans about a dozen. United Artists lists five musicals, RKO, at least 10, 
Universal, six, Warners, eight, Columbia, three, while several of the smaller companies will also 
do musicals — admittedly an elastic classification. 

Hollywood, tco, proposes to bring many outstanding stage hits of today and yesterday to the 
screen in 1937-38, including "Dead End," "Tovarich," "Stage Door," "White Horse Inn," "Boy 
Meets Girl," "The Firefly," "The Desert Song," "Idiot's Delight," "Girl of the Golden West," "You 
Can't Take It With You," "The Awful Truth," "Sally, Irene and Mary." 

There will be continued attention paid to the classics and to biographical and historical sub- 
jects. Sea stories will receive attention, with several of the year's important productions in this 
category. Westerns, it is indicated, will account for at least 15 per cent of releases. 

A further production highlight is afforded by the increased attention to series pictures. Para- 
mount will have four sets built around Hopalong Cassidy, Sophie Lang, Fu Manchu and Bulldog 
Drummond; 20th Century-Fox will have three featuring Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto and the Jones 
Family; RKO plans three Inspector Piper stories; Grand National will have series pix concerned 
with Flash Casey, The Shadow, Renfrew of the Mounted, and Wallaby Jim. And M-G-M will 
continue the Thin Man series, Columbia, the Nero Wolfe series and Warners, the Perry Mason 
and Torchy Blane series.

COLOR 



• • • MORE THAN 23 COLOR FEATURES PLANNED FOR THE 
1937-1938 SEASON, INDICATING NEW HIGH FOR COLOR OUTPUT 



By ARTHUR W. EDDY 

Associnte Editor, THE FILM DAILY 

HOLLYWOOD producer interest in color, largely stimulated by results as demonstrated in "A Star 
Is Born," the David O. Selznick-United Artists production, will crystallize in substantially more 
than 25 features during the season of 1937-38. These plans, if carried out, m.ean a new high 
for color production in the feature field. 

According to no less an authority than Dr. Herbert T. Kalmus, president of Technicolor, between 
18 and 20 features will be made with his process next year in this country. Mere than 50,000,000 
feet of Technicolor will be used during the current calendar year, Dr. Kalmus estimates, and, 
anticipating a further rise, his company is planning to double the capacity of its Hollywood labora- 
tory. His recent visit to England was partly due to plans for increasing the capacity of the 
Technicolor plant there. 

Technicolor, by far and away the leading color firm from the standpoint of output, expects to 
more than double its last year's sales of 37,000,000 feet. Output for the first three months of 1937 
amounted to 938,181 feet, indicating an increase of 200,000 feet over the corresponding period last 
year. Technicolor stockholders have been informed. 

Biggest color bombshell of the past year was tossed into the industry's lap when Samuel 
Goldwyn, in May, announced that he intends to make all his future productions in color. Alexander 
Korda, who cuts an important figure in British production affairs, has indicated his intention of 
making at least three of his London Films productions in color. Other English companies contemplate 
at least six more features containing this production ingredient. 

Among the entrants into the color situation during the past year was the Keller-Dorian process, 
control of which is passing from the Celestin-Colgate interests to a group of foreign capitalists. 
Grand National is the initial company to disclose plans for making pictures via this system. George 
E. Quigley, former Warner Bros. -First National executive, is associated with the new group. 

Color continues to hold its own in the short subject field, particularly in cartoons and travel 
reels. It was advantageously used in connection with pictures made of the Coronation in England 
and 20th Century-Fox is distributing a Technicolor treatment of the subject. 

Sponsors of color systems, including Technicolor, are still expending every possible laboratory 
effort to improve their processes and to reduce costs. Dr. Kalmus has predicted that in less than 
two years, it will be possible to take Technicolor pictures with ordinary motion picture cameras 
and that his company will be able to take color separations from the negative, thus discarding the 
reversal process used at the present time. 

All signs along the motion picture highways and byways point to a substantial increase in the 
use of color during 1937-38 and the years to follow.

TELEVISION 



• • COMMERCIAL TELEVISION NOT EXPECTED FOR ANOTHER 
YEAR: TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE BEING IMPROVED 



By EDWARD HARRISON 
THE FILM DAILY STAFF 

WHILE it appears certain that television will not be established on a commercial basis during 
1937, the Federal Government virill be seriously considering the granting of licenses for 
commercial television broadcasting before a year has elapsed, THE FILM DAILY is advised. 

The facts about television are that sets can be marketed by concerns such as RCA for around 
$250. In England television sets are sold at price ranging between $280 and $340. Home tele- 
vision sets here will show pictures ranging in size from 7V'2 by 10 inches to 18 by 24 inches. 
RCA in a recent demonstration threw pictures on a screen 3 feet by 4 feet that were very bright 
and pictures 6 feet by 8 feet that were not quite so clear. With the advance of time, RCA is 
expected to improve on this performance. 

In England, there have been regular television broadcasts twice daily for almost a year. 
Recently the coronation was televised. THE FILM DAILY is informed on good authority that every- 
thing which has been done in television in England can be duplicated here. RCA has been con- 
ducting experimental film tests from a transmitter mounted atop the Empire State Building for 
over a year, and has thus developed an invaluable fund of program experience. From this experi- 
ence has come the knowledge that program with national appeal can be built reasonably. 

Two sample programs which the public was not privileged to see establish this. One program 
included a leader strip on film, a studio presentation of a triangle farce involving four characters, 
four musical acrobats who played a variety of instruments, the Louis-Braddock fight film, a comedy 
scene laid in a hospital, a match between the table tennis champions recently seen at the Radio 
City Music Hall and, finally, a trailer on film. The second program included a leader strip, a word 
of introduction from an announcer, a farcical film titled "Prohibition Days," a child prodigy playing 
the piano and singing, a newsreel, a studio presentation of a murder drama, a short subject 
showing the construction of Boulder Dam and a trailer. 

It is now possible to televise all the outdoor scenes, both day and night, that are taken by 
the movie-newsreel cameraman. 

Present standard of television programs will provide a higher grade of entertainment than 
that afforded by radio. 

The quality and clearness of television pictures is constantly being improved. 

RCA, Farnsworth and Philco are the principal factors in television manufacture here. Most 
radio manufacturers are RCA licensees and will thus be able to manufacture television sets if 
they desire. 

American Telephone & Telegraph Co. is confining its interest in television to development of 
the coaxial cable making possible transmission of television programs between two cities. An 
A. T. 6c T. official said the company had no plans at this time to manufacture and sell television 
transmitting apparatus as RCA is doing. 

It will be possible to send programs from city to city either by cable or radio. Test of both 
these methods show them to be equally good. Difference in cost is not great at the moment. 
Further research will develop which is the most practical. 

Before granting commercial television rights to any company, the government will determine 
whether the control of television should remain in the hands of private capital under government 
supervision, or under direct government management and control. Decision by the government 
on a policy towards television control was advocated recently by the National Resources Com- 
mittee on technological trends and social implications of inventions in a report made to President 
Roosevelt. The committee was appointed by President Roosevelt. 

Radio's increased use of movie "names" for air programs has lead several of the major 
companies into program producing and augurs a quick step into television by these companies 
when sight and sound broadcasting starts. M-G-M has signed to produce a weekly show for 
radio. Warner Bros, is active through its Transamerica Corp. Paramount is also in the field.

PUBLICITY 

• • • LARGER GROSSES RESULT FROM COOPERATION BETWEEN 
DISTRIBUTOR AND EXHIBITOR 

By GEORGE H. MORRIS 

THE FILM DAILY STAFF 

SCARCELY a word has been forthcoming with respect to a factor which certainly has aided in 
no small degree to the creation of present high film revenues, — namely, the part publicity, 

advertising and exploitation have played in the current prosperity of filmland. It is the spirit 
ot cooperation which has made it possible for the elements to exert the heaviest sort of influence 
upon the public. 

Before expanding this point, it should be said that while many exhibitors and even entire 
indie circuits are of the opinion that there are more advantages to be derived from playing 
pictures on flat rental rather than on percentage, — and their opinion is entitled to respect, — there 
is no gain-saying the fact that when such circuits and exhibitors "go into business" with pro- 
ducing companies, the latter are far more inclined to "shoot the works" to get as many patrons 
as possible to step up to box-offices and buy. 

The phrase "shoot the works" of ccurse applies to publicity, advertising and exploitation sup- 
port. Up in the key and kindred important runs, percentage engagements are dominantly in 
force. Not only does the concentration of population in such stands influence producers to book 
in this wise in order to gain revenue satisfactorily proportionate to their high production costs, 
but the very fact that the population in these spots is great, and therefore necessitate powerful 
publicity, advertising and exploitation coverage to build big b.o. returns, producers are prompted 
to ally their forces with those of the local theatre. 

Naturally there is no actual barometer for judging what "might have been" at box-offices, — 
whether the local stand might not have farad just as well using the services of its own publicists 
exclusively; or conversely, whether the producer's publicity representative or representatives 
assigned to the engagement raised the gross and how much. But it is safe to say that, as a 
general rule, the uniting of exhibitor and producer publicists in a common cause is a tremendous 
asset in putting a film over with the public. In the final analysis, it is results that count. The 
records are studded with examples of brilliant campaigns which have been conducted on this 
basis, with consequent brilliant grosses. Also, it is more than a coincidence that revenues from 
key and similar engagements have swung upward with the increase in the practice of booking 
on a percentage basis. 

Few, if any, industries can compare with filmland in the cooperation extended to retail outlets 
by the manufacturer. Merchandising of pictures both great and small has reached a remarkable 
scale and state of development by virtue of the fact that whether films go to key stands or to 
the secondaries, their makers, in common with the theatres, have a vital interest in how the product 
fares. Most industries are content to permit the outlets to get along as best they can, in accordance 
with public demand. A certain amount of display material and merchandising suggestions are 
made, it is true, but not comparable to the intensive practice which prevails in the motion picture 
business. One outstanding proof of this is the fact that other big businesses are constantly 
using filmland's methods as models, and appropriating them. They term this, quite naively, 
"applying showmanship to selling." 

During the past year, virtually every producing company, via its branch offices and exchanges, 
had set up regional publicists in growing quantities to assist the exhibitor in making his theatre 
pay better dividends. Such publicists, either directly assigned to the theatre, or in a position to 
furnish ideas, advice and helpful suggestions for any given run, work on what, for a better phrase, 
might be described as the "G-Man Code." In other words, the regional or home office publicist, 
as a matter of both common sense and diplomacy, unfailingly gives credit for all accomplishments 
in the way of tie-ups, stunts, etc., to the local theatre's publicity department. Often this code is 
not at all essential, for many of the top bracket houses today have publicists on their payrolls 
whose capabilities challenge the best of manpower the producer can supply. 

There have been and are many examples of the skill with which local theatre publicists 
handle their jobs, and it is not infrequently that producer home offices are compelled to recognize, 
and often adopt, campaign details that are born in the fertile minds of non-company publicity,

TECHNICAL 

m 9 9 A SURVEY OF DEVELOPMENTS IN MECHANICAL TECH- 
NIQUE DURING THE PAST YEAR 

By L. H. MITCHELL 
THE FILM DAILY STAFF 

WHILE there were no startling innovations in the motion picture technical field since the last 
issue of the Product Guide and Directors' Annual, there has been a general improvement in 

both materials and technic in several phases of the industry. 

Continuing improvements have been made in the field of color. Kodachrome has announced a 
new type for use with artificial lighting, with compensation for the difference in color between 
incandescent lamps and daylight. Filters are provided for interchangeably using the film with either 
light source. Agfa announced a new color scheme based upon the Fischer process. Technicolor 
showed pronounced improvement in color, while Cinecolor, Magncolor, Cosmocolor, iDufaycolor, 
Keller-Dorian, Chemicolour and others made strong claims for improved processes. 

In black and white photography for sun-standard cameras a new high-speed panchromatic 
film was made available. A new infra-red-sensitive negative film for professional production work 
was also put on the market. In conjunction with red filters special effects are made possible such 
as night photography in full daylight. 

A radical new type of film for the production of duplicates from transparencies by a single 
step was announced. It takes advantage of the solarization property of emulsions, obtaining the 
reversal point in sensitivity by a ripening process during manufacture in the presence of fog-produc- 
ing agents, instead of by over-exposing the emulsions to light. 

Progress was made in the development of an unblimped silent camera. A number of studios 
installed the NC Mitchell cameras for use in conjunction with very lightweight blimps. 

The Columbia studios developed a direct motor drive for high-speed camera work, remotely 
controlled by a rheostat, providing smooth movement from 24 to 192 frames per second, thus 
eliminating the gear-box and its unsteadiness. 

Hal Mohr's useful method of achieving greater depth of field by using a lens so mounted that 
it can be rotated about its nodal point, and setting the lens angle for each shot so that near and 
far objects are in the best focus in the film, came into greater use. Effect of using the lens in 
this manner is the same as though the camera were equipped with a swing-back. 

General Electric's new flood flash lamp for still photography is another recent improvement. 
It produces an average of 30 lumens per watt, or as much light as the standard 200-watt filament 
lamp. 

In the field of film for sub-standard cameras is the Hypan high-speed, fully panchromatic, fine- 
grain, non-halation, reversible film for outdoor use developed by the Agfa Ansco Corp. Eastman 
Kodak Co. introduced Kodachrome Type A for use with artificial light. Gevaert made available 
to the U. S. market a Panchro Super and Panchro fine-grain reversal film. 

Eastman introduced a magazine Cine-Kodak 16 mm. camera which eliminates difficulty in 
threading and which may be operated at half-speed, normal speed and at 64 frames per second. 
Keystone Manufacturing Co. introduced a new line of 8 mm. cameras which will accommodate 
either 8 mm. or double 8mm. film. Paillard-Bolex placed on the American market a new 16 mm. 
camera having such features as speeds of 8, 16, 32 and 64 frames, backward rewind for trick 
work, automatic threading, special view finder to prevent parallax, audible footage indicator, usual 
focusing, and automatic footage indicator. 

Kodascope introduced its Model E projector, a modification of Model EE, which is said to be 
on a par with its Model L but at a much lower price. Bell & Howell came out with a new 16 mm. 
projector, Model 138, for home and school use. It may be equipped with a 750-watt lamp and 
will accommodate 1,600-ft. reels. Universal Camera Co. brought out an 8 mm. projector for the 
low priced field. Andre OeBrie announced a new 16 mm. sound projector to meet the requirements 
of 16 mm. projector equipment. 

Squeeze-track recording, engineered by the M-G-M studies, was much used as a means for 
extending volume range (in "Maytirae," for instance). Push-pull ultra violet recording came into

PRODUCTION 
PERSONALITIES 

• • • ^ REVIEW^ OF THE MEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INDUS- 
TRY'S FLOW OF OUTSTANDING PICTURES 



By RALPH WILK 

West Coast Representative, THE FILM DAILY 

NUMEROUS changes have been made in the production ranks of Hollywood during the past 
12 months. Irving G. Thalberg's death was a serious loss. William Koenig left the general 
managership of Universal studios to accept an important post at M-G-M. Grand National 
entered the production field, as did Condor. Monogram resumed production. Nat Levine resigned 
as head of the Republic plant and joined M-G-M. 

Harry Cohn has continued the use of writer-producers, and the former writers now producing 
for Columbia include Frances Marion, Robert Riskin, Myles Connolly, Everett Riskin, Sidney Buch- 
man and Nat Perrin. Other Columbia producers comprise Leo McCarey, William Perlberg, Irving 
Briskin, Ralph Cohn, Harry Decker, Jack Fier and Wallace MaaDonald. 

Louis B. Mayer has made several additions to the production ranks at M-G-M. Carl Laemmle, 
Jr., and Nat Levine are among the new producers at the Culver City plant. Writer-producers at 
M-G-M include Edward Chodorov, Grover Jones, Joseph Mankiwiecz, J. K. McGuinness, and Norman 
Krasna. Among the veteran executives at the studio are Edw^ard Mannix, Hunt Stromberg, Bernard 
Hyman, Harry Rapf, John Considine, Jr. and Joseph J. Cohn. Other producers are Lawrence Wein- 
garten, Louis Lighten, Jack Cummings, Michael Fessier, Lou Ostrow, Tom Reed, Merian C. Cooper, 
Arthur Freed, Sam Zimbalist, and Frank T. Davis. Jack Chertok is in charge of short subject 
production. Michael Balcon will be in charge of M-G-M's British production. 

Adolph Zukor is chief executive at Paramount, with William LeBaron, general manager of 
production. Albert Lewin, who was Irving G. Thalberg's chief aide, is a newcomer at Paramount. 
Lucien Hubbard has returned to the fold after several years at Warners and M-G-M. Cecil B. 
deMille, Wesley Ruggles, Ernst Lubitsch, Arthur Hornblow, Jr., Rouben Mamoulian, Lewis Gensler, 
Frank Lloyd and his aide, Howard Estabrook, continue at the Marathon street plant. Mel Shauer, 
Harol Hurley, Harlan Thompson, A. M. Botsford, Paul Jones, Jack Cunningham, Fanchon, William T. 
Lackey are among the producers. Herbert Moulton, Robert C. Bruce, Jerry Fairbanks and Robert 
Carlisle are Paramount short subject producers. Benjamin Glazer is leaving Paramount after an 
association of seven years and is expected to sign a producer contract at Warners. 

The newest addition that Darryl Zanuck has made at 20th Century-Fox is Harry Joe Brown, 
who moves over from Warners. Sol M. Wurtzel continues as executive producer. Associate pro- 
ducers are Nunnally Johnson, Kenneth Macgowan, John Stone, Earl Carroll, Samuel G. Engel, Gene 
Markey, Laurence Schwab, Harold Wilson, Milton Feld, Leslie Landau and Max Golden. Dan 
Michalove, veteran in exhibition and distribution fields, is being groomed for an associate pro- 
ducership. Robert T. Kane is in charge of 20th Century-Fox production in England. 

Few changes have been made in the Warner forces. Jack Warner continues at the head of 
the studio, with Hal Wallis as his chief aide. Henry Blanke, Robert Lord, Sam Bischoff and Lou 
Eldelman are among the veteran producers. Mervyn LeRoy has his own unit. David Lewis, who 
was a member of the Irving G. Thalberg unit at M-G-M, is the newest producer at Warners. Bryan 
Foy remains at the head of the lower-budget output, with Frank Mandel as one of his supervisors. 

S. J. Briskin's contingent at RKO comprises Pandro Berman, Jesse L. Lasky, Albert Lewis, 
Cliff Reid, Edward Kaufman, William Sistrom, Lee Marcus, P. J. Wolfson, Lou Lusty, Maury M. 
Cohen and Robert Sisk. Edward Small recently completed his contract with RKO and is now in 
Europe. 

Charles R. Rogers' battery of producers at Universal numbers E. M. Asher, Leu Brock, B. G. 
DeSylva, Edmund Grainger, John M. Stahl, Joseph Pasternak, Robert Presnell and Trem Carr. 
Walter Lantz is at the head of the cartoon department. 

Harold Shumate and Harry Sauber are the newest additions to Moe Siegel's forces at Republic. 
Hold overs are Colbert Clark, Leonard Fields, Herman Schlom, William Berke and Armand Schaefer. 
Harry Grey was recently upped to a producership.

EASTERN 

PRODUCTION 



• MORE THAN 300 SHORT SUBJECTS PRODUCED IN THE 
EAST DURING THE LAST SEASON 



T 



By SID WEISS 
THE FILM DAILY STAFF 



HE East, pioneer production center of the motion picture industry, continues to make definite 
strides toward supremacy in the short subjects field. 

More than 300 shorts were completed in Eastern studios during the past season as com- 
pared with some 280 for the preceding year. Next season's schedule calls for a still greater 
expansion. 

The trend today in short subjects is in three directions — musicals, sports thrillers and travel. 
Sports thrillers such as those turned out by Warners, Van Beuren and Columbia have hit th® top 
brackets in popularity. Travel and pictorial reviews have demonstrated consistent audience appeal. 
Most of the independent producers have turned to musicals, with a measure of success. 

Comedy shorts, such as those made by Al Christie for Educational and the Warner Vitaphone 
subjects, are naturally a standard product and frequently are responsible for rounding out and 
lifting an otherwise so-so program. Band shorts, too, come in for their measure of popularity, with 
both Paramount and Warners reporting enthusiastic reception, especially in the smaller towns. 

While no feature productions were made in the East last year, there w^ere many location shots 
taken here, in addition to the Kirsten Flagstad sequence in Paramount's "Big Broadcast of 1938," 
which was filmed at the General Service studios at Astoria, Long Island. 

Production centers here, nevertheless, are highly optimistic regarding the future of feature 
work in the East, with current programs contemplating more than a few full-length films. 

Condor Pictures, Inc. alone are transferring all their Eastern production activities to the West 
Coast. Condor, which has taken over Van Beuren Productions, will turn out 26 one-reelers for 
RKO in Hollywood. 

Two additional studios joined the metropolitan production fold. Burgi Centner took over the 
Lincoln studios at Ridgefield, N. J. and renamed it the Producers Service studio. The Edison studio 
on Decatur avenue in the Bronx has been rechristened the Film Art studios, with John T. Doran 
now the guiding head. 

B. K. Blake, who produced the "Voice of Experience" and "Court of Human Relations" series 
for Columbia last year, will concentrate on musicals for the forthcoming season and is scheduled 
to produce 13 at the Biograph studios. 

Milton Schwarzwald, who made 13 one-reelers for Universal last season, will do 13 two- 
reelers under his new contract. He will also do seven one-reelers for RKO. 

Of the 300 shorts made in the East last season, 100 were made at the Warner Bros. Vitaphone 
studios in Brooklyn, with Sam Sax as chief executive; 76 by Educational at the General Service 
studios in Astoria, under the supervision of Al Christie; 30 by Don Hancock for Van Beuren; 
10 by B. K. Blake for Columbia; 13 by Milton Schwarzwald for Universal; 37 by Paramount. 

In addition, a sports series was produced by Ben Schwalb for Columbia and Historical shorts 
were made by John T. Doran at the Film Art.

PRODUCTION 
CODE OF ETHICS 



» TEXT OF THE CODE WHICH IS HELD LARGELY RESPON- 
SIBLE FOR BETTER MOTION PICTURE STANDARDS 



PURPOSE of the Hays production code is to guide motion pictures so tliey may conform with 
"the highest possible social and community standards." Founded seven years ago and re- 
organized in 1934, its procedure now covers 11 distinct steps or moves, as follows: considera- 
tion and registration of titles offered for pictures in order to avoid the double meaning, suggestive 
or otherwise unsuitable; preliminary examination of the production possibilities of plays, books 
and stories; story conferences with studio executives during initial stages of production; careful 
study of scripts submitted by producers; story conferences to effect necessary revisions to make 
scripts conform with code standards; conferences during actual production; previewing of separate 
sequences during progress of production, preliminary previewing of pictures before they are finally 
edited; previewing of completed production; notifications of needed deletions and final approval 
of finished pictures. Under the self-regulatory plan, pictures approved are given a seal indicating 
the picture has complied with the code provisions. 

TEXT OF THE PRODUCTION CODE 

PRINCIPLES UNDERLYING THE CODE 

1. Motion picture producers recognize the high trust and confidence which have been placed 
in them by the people of the world, and they recognize their responsibility to the public because 
of this trust. 

2. Theatrical motion pictures (that is, pictures intended for the theater as distinct from pictures 
intended fcr churches, schools, lecture halls, educational movements, social reform movements, etc.) 
are primarily to be regarded as entertainment. Mankind has always regarded the importance of 
entertainment and its value in rebuilding the bodies and souls of human beings. 

3. It is recognized that there is entertainment which tends to improve the race (or at least to 
recreate and build human beings exhausted with the realities of life), and entertainment which tends 
to harm human beings, or to lower their standards of life and living. 

4. Motion pictures are an important form of art expression. Art enters immediately into the 
lives of human beings. The art of motion pictures has the same objectives as the other arts — the 
presentation of human thought, emotion, and experience, in terms of an appeal to the soul through 
the senses. 

5. In consequence of the foregoing facts the following general principles are adopted: 

No picture shall be produced which will lower the moral standards of those who see it. 

Hence, the sympathy of the audience should never be thrown to the side of crime, wrong- 
doing, evil or sin. 

Correct standards of life shall be presented on the screen, subject only to necessary 
dramatic contrasts. 

Law, natural or human, should not be ridiculed, nor shall sympathy be created for its 
violation.

PUBLICITY 

(Continued frovi page 31) 



advertising and exploitation men. Obviously, teamwork between these and producing company 
publicists has resulted in building b.o. receipts. 

Another important step taken of recent years by producing companies is their alliance with 
national advertising agencies whereby the latter's knowledge and experience is added to that of 
the producer's own departments engaged in the merchandising of pictures. Recently, the results 
of this particular alliance are beginning to show more and more, and, as a consequence, the 
theatres of the nation are profiting accordingly. 

The 1936-37 season has already been productive of advertising whose forcefulness and effec- 
tiveness on the public is strikingly evidenced. This is true not only of regularly prepared adver- 
tising directly relating to a given picture, but also of institutional advertising, which is winning 
increasing favor with the big picture makers. Producers have learned much in the past few 
years of strategic procedure in applying advertising. Through the more logical and efficient con- 
centration and distribution of copy, the benefits gained by the key houses now reach out in a 
cumulative way to the smallest types of theatres in all territories. Long before the individual 
exhibitor receives a picture for his screen, his potential patronage is pretty well apprised of its 
merits, stressed as they are hammer-like force during the entire period from the film's birth to the 
time it moves down through the secondary stands.

more general use. This method claims to increase the resolution of the sound track, reduce 
fogging due to halation and to decrease the chromatic aberration of the lens system. 

RCA introduced its non-slip printer with ultra violet-printing which appears to show con- 
siderable improvement over existing printers. 

Erpi brought out the W.E. high-quality, heavy-duty reproducer, set, coded TA-7400, forming part 
of the Mirrophonic sound system. It has a sealed precision kinetic scanner to insure uniform speed 
of film propulsion and uses the latest type of projection optical scanning capable of accommodating 
single push-pull or double-track sound. 

RCA announced a new type of 1060 high-fidelity sound attachment which may be used to 
reproduce either push-pull or standard recordings. It also announced further improvements to its 
high-fidelity, two-way loud speaker, and also its type PG-105 theater sound reproducing equipment 
for theaters up to 500 capacity. 

International Projector Corp. announced a new Super Simplex pedestal, said to permit a 
steadiness hitherto unequalled. An intermittent sprocket that is hardened and accurately ground 
was introduced for use with the Simplex projecting mechanism. 

Erpi announced a new type double-film attachment as an adjunct to the new W.E. heavy-duty 
reproducer. It provides a means for reproducing separate sound and picture records on 1,000-ft. 
reels and permits the use of 2,000-ft. reels when single film is run.

DARRYL F. ZANUCK 

Youngest of Hol- 
lywood's major ex- 
ecutives and a 
genuis of screen 
making. Bitten at 
the tender age of 6 
by the movie bug, 
sneaking away 
while visiting Cali- 
fornia with his par- 
ents to earn 50 
cents a day acting 
in the films. Indus- 
try career received 

its first impetus when as a Fox Film Company 
scenarist he turned out almost a script a week. 
Later affiliations: Warner Brothers, 20th Cen- 
tury Pictures; 20th Century-Fox, for which he 
now guides all direction. Was in at the birth 
of talkies via the unforgettable "The Jazz 
Singer." Conceived the idea of dramatizing

Mayer and proof 
positive of the ad- 
a g e . "Industrial 
leaders are born." 
At 14, directing fig- 
ure of a New Bruns- 
wick ship-salvaging 
concern! First con- 
tact with filmdom 
came when he took 
over a small house 
in Haverhill, Mass.; 
one by one, all five houses there were brought 
under his control. With Nat Gordon, formed 
Gordon-Mayer Circuit, subsequently became 
interested in exchange end and his picture 
judgment so impressed that advent of M-G-M 
in 1924 saw him selected as logical head of 
operations. Developed thesis of super-quality 
in pictures, gave free rein to the "star system." 
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 
was born in his house. Thrice president of 
Association of M. P. Producers. Physically 
active. Avid reader of biography. Fond of a 
good game of bridge.

Invested with Loew. Produced independently. 
Became chairman of United Artists' board in 
1924. Joined with Darryl F. Zanuck for 20th 
Century in 1933. Resigned from U. A. presi- 
dency in 1935 to take present post. Essence 
of his philosophy: "Save money, have the 
courage of your convictions, welcome hard 
work, be loyal, and keep your word, once 
given, to everybody." It is a success recipe 
par excellence, witness Schenck's career.

WHO'S WHO IN HOLLYWOOD 




ERNST LUBITSCH 

Producer and di- 
rector for Para- 
mount, and the man 
responsible for the 
critic-coined descrip- 
t i V e phraseology, 
"Lubitsch touches." 
Professional career 
is rooted in the Ger- 
man theater of Max 
Reinhardt. First film 
work for the old 
Berlin Bioscope. In 
1915, began to di- 
rect features, introducing symbolism. At- 
tracted American attention in a big way with 
"Mme. Du Barry" ("Passion") in 1919. Ac- 
cepted an UFA offer. Thence to Hollywood 
to direct Mary Pickford in "Rosita." After 
that, a string of successes and international 
fame. Found the talkie technique easily mas- 
tered, witness "The Love Parade." Became 
managing director of production for Paramount 
in 1935, but asked to be relieved to produce- 
direct. Hobby: That black cigar. Hair, black. 
Eyes, brown. Stands 5, 7. 

EDWARD J. MANNIX 

Met ro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer producer 
and, personally, an 
unusual combina 
t i o n of business 
ability, diplomacy 
and freedom from ^ 
prejudice. Preceded | 
his advent into pic- j 
tures by (a) five 
years devoted to 
eastern show man- 
agement and (b) 14 
seasons spent as 

manager of Nicholas M. Schenck's Palisades 
Park. First picture experience gained with 
Allan Dwan in the producing of Evelyn Nes- 
bit Thaw's "The Inner Woman." Later man- 
ager of Norma and Constance Talmadge pro- 
ductions for Joseph M. Schenck. Subsequent 
posts: Eastern representative for all Schenck 
productions, financial comptroller of M-G-M, 
studio manager, assistant to Irving Thalberg, 
v.p. and studio key executive. Hobby? Well, 
put it down as traveling, for he's visited every 
state and quite a bit of the Dominion of Can- 
ada and old Mexico. 





FRANK LLOYD 

Paramount p r o - 
ducer and the only 
three-time winner of 
Motion Picture 
Academy awards 
("Divine Lady,'' 
"Cavalcade" and 
"Mutiny on the 
Bounty"). Credit 
these achievements 
to a solid knowl- 
edge of both stage 
and screen. Became 
identified with Eng- 
lish theater at 15. Arrived in Hollywood in 
1913 when industry was wearing swaddling 
clothes. First job was writing, directing Uni- 
versal single reelers. Subsequent affiliations: 
Morosco-Pallas, Fox, Goldwyn, Joseph M. 
Schenck, Sol Lesser, First National. Master of 
spectacle. Few can equal him in extracting 
maximum dramatic value from a scene. Slow- 
spoken. Never reveals irritation. Active in 
the Academy. Hobbies: His ranch, his Irish 
terriers. Reads detective yarns, philosophical 
works. Hair, brown. Eyes, blue. Stands 5, 

111/2. 

WILLIAM GOETZ 

Executive assis- 
tant of Darryl F. 
Zanuck at 20th Cen- 
tury-Fox, and the 
youngest of five 
brothers, all of 
whom have won 
their spurs in the 
industry. Rejected 
Brother Ben's ad- 
vice that he pre- 
pare for a berth in

with the blood of 
the '49ers — and 
troupers — cours- 
ing in his veins. 
Father was Landis 
Stevens, a 'Frisco 
matinee idol of yes- 
teryear; his mother. 
Georgie Cooper, 
a stage favorite of 
"before the fire." 
Made his own debut 
at the old Alcazar al Iha age of four, when he 
appeared in a Nance O'Neil production of 
"Sappho." On graduating from Sonoma High 
School in 1918, was stage manager and acted 
for his father in San Francisco. Went to Holly- 
wood in 1921 to act, found it crowded with 
actors and took a job as assistant cameraman 
at Metro. Since then he has done everything 
in motion pictures but act. For four years he 
was a cameraman at Hal Roach. Then he 
turned to writing and eventually to directing. 
Comedy, his forte. Pet aversion, triteness.
