How many times have you bought an idea or product from a celebrity spokesman? Does the ethos they project reach into the pathos and hypnotize the logos?

Charlie Chaplin wasn't the only one..

 

A lot of the old horror movies in the silent era were made by individuals who came back from WW1. The imagery is stark and the story telling techniques reflect the dark visions they encountered during their time in hell. I've heard tales of the famous Lon Chaney from that era. He brought this attitude into his characters on film. Many are horrific in nature.

 

Movies can make us laugh, they can be shocking, and they can make people think in whatever era they come from. It's interesting how much they have evolved since their inception upon society.

Of course, the studios would hype their movies to the max. They still do. Including hiring actors to scream and run out of the theater, paying ambulance drivers to show up and run their sirens, and keeping scripts secret almost to the very end...all to build up an artificial hype almost beyond endurance.

 

..and it works!
