In 1932, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) officially recognized this new medium with the creation of its Committee of Photoplay Appreciation (Applebee, 1974). This committee made recommendations about film use in English classes and generated study guides for teachers. However, the attention to film was not well received by all, and there was criticism that teachers were not properly trained to teach film (Hatfield, 1935). Yet film continued to have its advocates. Speaking at the 1947 NCTE convention, Frazier (1948) called for educators to seek a common ground between books and film and asserted that teachers could “combine films and books on a basis of equality” (p. 176).
