“Kuleshov and I made an interesting experiment”*

from my iphone

“Remember the early days of the cinema, when directors were afraid to cut up the visual movement on the screen, and how Griffith’s introduction of the close-up was misunderstood and by many labelled an unnatural and consequently an inadmissible method. Audiences in those days even cried:
“Where are their legs!”.
—Pudovkin
