It might also attract an additional group of those you are most desirous of reaching. If possible, it would be in keeping to have an exhibit by a Russian artist during the showing of a Russian film, an Italian artist during the showing of an Italian film, and so forth.

THE PICTURES

It also goes without saying that screen fare for such an operation should steer clear of anything save the very artistic best that the motion-picture industry of all the world has to offer. With war restrictions of shipment and production off, there is more than sufficient product available for one to select only the very best from France, Italy, Russia, England, and other foreign sources-plus a super-critical selection of several outstandingly meritorious American-made films.
