Summary:Robert Erskine talks about the distinction between the fine and useful arts both in the past and today. He considers how valid this distinction is and some of its implications. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
