Industrial Context • “Mass production is the focusing upon a manufacturing product of the principles of power, accuracy, economy, system, continuity and speed…and the normal result is the productive organization that delivers in quantities a useful commodity of standard material, workmanship and design at a minimum cost”. • Henry Ford, in Bordwell, 1991. p. 91 kinowords.edublogs.org

  8. Hollywood: Art & Commerce • “Efficiency experts trained in other industries are usually baffled when they try to fit the making of a movie to their standard rules. • The fact is, a movie is essentially a hand-craft operation, a one-of-a-kind custom job – but it must be made on the factory basis, with production-line economics, if we’re to hold the price down within reach of most of the people. • The job is to do this without losing the picture’s individuality”. • Dore Schary, MGM Producer, 1950 kinowords.edublogs.org
