This chapter considers Iris Barry's articles for the Spectator. These include her analysis of Charlie Chaplin's film The Gold Rush, which she highly praised, and the article “Lesser glories,” published in the March 6, 1926 issue, where she observed that “the more intelligent cinemagoers seem to be divided into two: those who go seldom and only when they can be sure of seeing an exceptionally good picture, and those who go frequently to take the bad with the good.” In September 1927, Iris convinced the Mail to send her to Hollywood for the first time. There she quickly satisfied her curiosity about Americans and looked for films for the Film Society.
