Darryl F. Zanuck, Founder of 20th Century Films (now known as 20th Century Fox)
"Objects are never humans to a computer, nor are they faces or bodies. It aims not for man as an object. The reason is simple: because the computer is this object in and of itself. Maybe this is why we do not cry at websites like we cry at the movies. Maybe it is why there is no “faciality” with the computer, why there is no concept of a celebrity star system (except ourselves), no characters or story (except our own), no notion of recognition and reversal, as Aristotle said of poetry. If the movie screen always directs toward, the computer screen always directs away. If at the movies you tilt your head back, with a computer you tilt in."
