This book has been written equally in the service of the theatre and in that of the film. Now that the first excite ment attendant upon the cinema's growth has passed away, there seems to have come a time when we ought to pause and consider the position which the theatre must occupy during the years immediately to follow, in the midst of conditions essentially divergent from those prevailing three decades ago. During the course of those thirty years the film has slowly and with infinite labour been discovering its true field of expression. The more strenuous tasks com plered, we have just arrived at a period when this field can be analysed calmly and its value assessed, when, too, it is possible, by comparison with cinematic aims, to clarify and determine the essentials, aims and methods which it seems the theatre's business to pursue.
