I wonder what she meant by making a love scene appear "foolish" —?
I think she meant that love scenes often look unnatural and idiotic, but her favorite does a good job in making it look real.

Re: Criticism of the Photoplay

wow! That sounds pretty unusual. Is it on YouTube? I'll watch that for sure. It is, but there’s no score, darn it, and you know how I feel about that... but if you want to watch it anyway, the part I mean starts around minute 34, where Bobby Harron and Mae Marsh go to the movies.
