Summary

To the Editor S. C. M. Post – Mr. Ray's reply on the 'Films Out East' article. He has an opposite view. About China as a dumping ground for junk films. He hardly thinks Paramount, Realart, and Fox productions are to be classed in that category. He mentioned that the Coronet showed a lot of good pictures, including 'Alf's Button,' First National, Metro, Vitagraph specials, Pathe and United Artists. For comedies, they have Chaplin, Lloyd, Semon, Rolin, and Mack Sennett release, the only first-class comedian not appearing on their screen so far being Buster Keaton. The Chinese demand is an entirely different one from European requirements, but a glance at the Chinese programmes of the World and Easter cinema shows that 1921 and 1922 serials have been shown continuously during the past year. Furthermore, about people have been 'had' by big advertising of poor pictures, he mentioned that even the 'Miracle Man,' 'Intolerance,' 'Male and Female,' 'Daddy Longlegs,' 'Back to God's Country,' 'The Brat,' 'Man, Woman, Marriage,' 'Way Down East,' got 'complaints'.
