TV goes to Hollywood - an article from 1938


How's your late winter going on? Still got snow? Are there any signs of spring?
In case you're struggling with winter blues, I'll try to make your day a bit brighter.
I found and article from September 17th 1938, and it is about one of our favourite subjects: the starry, glossy, lovely Old Hollywood.

Let's read it:

I'm looking forward to your opinions, dear friends.

  1. You did just that, my dear! In this day and age, we take TV for granted. Even those who may opt not to own one or to have cable (or satellite), most likely know someone who does and can go watch it at their place anytime. When it first burst onto the scenes, one has to wonder if the early inventors and adopters could ever have imagined how incredibly popular, widespread and world changing it would become?

    1. Your words, as always, hit the spot.
      I often wonder: did the makers of the original TV ever considered it's overpowering influence on our entire civilisation? Because, it's now a part of our culture, isn't it? I was born and raised as a "TV child" - a generation that had a TV in their home since the earliest days.. TV was my trusty companion, just as much as a PC is to numerous kids nowadays... as was the book for the generations of the kids from the days gone by.
      Imagining life without TV?
      Hardly possible.
