The new-born cinematograph was quickly recognised as holding the greatest potential as the voice of the modern age and fired the public, artistic and commercial imagination of the entire civilised world. The 1930s were the Golden Years of the cinema and the pages of this continuous popular weekly accurately reflect the development of the cinema after the advent of sound, on into the television era. The golden years of the cinema, the thirties and forties gradually faded away as television came to encroach on family entertainment. Kine Weekly faithfully records this decline, and also the rise of television from its early days as a popular medium.
