Industrial Context “Mass production is the focusing upon a manufacturing product of the principles of power, accuracy, economy, system, continuity and speed…and the normal result is the productive organization that delivers in quantities a useful commodity of standard material, workmanship and design at a minimum cost”. Henry Ford, in Bordwell, 1991. p. 91

9 AT JFK-I Fall 07, HW on HW 1kinowords.edublogs.org8 Hollywood: Art & Commerce “Efficiency experts trained in other industries are usually baffled when they try to fit the making of a movie to their standard rules. The fact is, a movie is essentially a hand- craft operation, a one-of-a-kind custom job – but it must be made on the factory basis, with production-line economics, if we’re to hold the price down within reach of most of the people. The job is to do this without losing the picture’s individuality”. Dore Schary, MGM Producer, 1950
