"What made these kinobossy or supported, it was the work of technicians, not artists - said later Zukor, analyzing the difference between the old guard from the movie" kinoevreev. "- I suggested showbiz."Taking a firm decision to do the film - it does not matter, with sanctions or without the approval of the Trust - Zukor took its stake in Loev and invested all the money in the "Feymos pleyerz." Loew nervous because Zukor was one of the major shareholders.

"Here - says Zukor - his defense beginning and give up the slack."To enhance its credibility in the eyes of society, Zukor hired critic of "New York City Evening Journal", and soon wrote about him as "the most significant figures in modern cinema."In 1913, Zukor Frome asked to speak with the talented young director, who had become famous as an innovator in American cinema, and to offer him a contract for fifty thousand dollars.
