"The so-called 'art film' was a rarity then. Today it's different - slightly different, still not absolutely different in Europe, and most American films are still being considered 'non-artistic,' let's say. Melodramas or cheap musicals, they call it and so forth. They disregard the vitality of the American film completely of course, and their own films are lacking in just that very thing."
