Introduction (1929)

From Jack Alicoate’s introduction to The Film Daily Year Book (1929):

Glancing backwards for a moment we see nineteen twenty-eight as the greatest milestone in the thirty years’ progress of this great industry. With its tremendous theaters, its millions upon millions of investments, its international prestige and its wholesome force for good, the motion picture compellingly stands today as the giant of the amusement kingdom. The coming of sound and the talking picture have made its position even more secure. Color for more general use is just over the hill and it is not unlikely that a third dimension will be knocking at the door soon.
