David Thomson wants readers to have no illusions about the central figure of Warner Bros: The Making of an American Movie Studio. Jack Warner was maybe the biggest scumbag ever to get into a Jewish Lives series. Among them they represent the spectrum of American acting in those years. Jack Warner was domineering, ruthless even, to those he owed part of his success to, and an egomaniac, but he was instrumental in bringing sound to cinema, reviving Alfred Hitchcock’s career (with Strangers on a Train, made after a few financial flops), and whether he appreciated it or not, he helped usher in method acting.

1920-1930 was the decade between the end of the Great War and the Depression following the Stock Market Crash. Film theaters and studios were not initially affected in this decade by the Crash in late 1929. The basic patterns and foundations of the film industry (and its economic organization) were established in the 1920s. Extravagant Movie Palaces: The major film studios built luxurious 'picture palaces' that were designed for orchestras to play music to accompany projected films.

If anything, American Movie is more of an anti-Making Of documentary. It doesn’t so much chart the usual production woes or act as the piece of sanitised PR that most making of documentaries are but cheerfully sets out to celebrate the aspirations and lives of wannabes on the edges of the American dream who are trying to make it as filmmakers. American Movie is, one suspects, exactly what you would have seen on the set of an Edward D. Wood Jr film.

Emil de Varney is a new immigrant from Italy. His friend tries to get him a job -- he doesn't speak English, so no. He gets a menial job, but is injured. When he gets out of the hospital, he decides to go to a class to learn English. With hard work and a good attitude, he eventually gets everything he had hoped for and when confronted with a young immigrant, he tells him to learn English and everything will follow.

This short subject from the State of Connecticut Board of Americanization was added to the National Registry in 2005. Its message seems very old-fashioned in this modern age of multi-culturism, but at its heart is the statement that education is the key to advancement.
