Quote of the Day

“Those who deal with the mass audience tend to become cynical as they search for the lowest common denominator of appeal.”

-- Garson Kanin, “Hollywood,” his memoir and warts-and-all love letter to Samuel Goldwyn, who never suffered the above problem. In fact, Kanin gives him the last line: “The public is f'Chrissake smarter than we are!” Would that I believed that. Would that it were true.
