Reflection on reading packets
I thought the reading we did was very interesting. We're focusing on what happened after the huge surge of films and why film became less popular. Our first reading about how people utilized film to aid in the war was interesting. By creating films with real life villains, filmmakers were about to place ideas in the minds of people. Our second reading was about the end of the golden age of film. Because of television and radio, people stopped going to see films on a weekly basis and much less films were produced. In it's height, film was one of the most important aspects of American society, but due to the convenience of the household TV and radio, film took a backseat.
