With his customary wit, Bernard Shaw maintained a dialogue on cinema that ran almost from the infancy of the industry in 1908 until his death in 1950. This text is a collection of Shaw's writings and oral statements about cinema. Early in the the life of cinema, Shaw perceived that as an invention, movies would be more momentous than the printing press because they appealed to the illiterate as well as the literate, to the manual labourer at the end of an exhausting day as well as to the person with more leisure. He recognized that cinema would form minds and shape conduct, by levelling art and life down to the lowest common denominator of potential audiences throughout the world.
