In the office of 'Famous Players,' I met Mr. Adolphe [sic] Zukor, the president of the organization. 'Everywhere the public take most kindly to three sorts of film – comedy, intimate drama, and spectacle, the last corresponding to the circus. The ‘bestseller' is not always good art, but I would draw your attention to the fact that the latest list of the season's 20 American ‘best sellers' includes works by Sinclair Lewis, Galsworthy, Arlen, Ferber, Gibbs, and E. M. Forester. And we are not afraid of classics – for this firm is shortly going to film Conrad's ‘Lord Jim.' When we did Peter Pan, we took a big risk. We paid more for it than has ever been paid for the film rights of a play. We try to keep in touch with our public and its needs everywhere.' -Robert Nicols in The Times.
