From Cowboys to Clara Bow: A College Student's Motion Picture Autobiography
Fears about the impact of movies on youth led to the Payne Fund research project, which brought together nineteen social scientists and resulted in eleven published reports. One of the most fascinating of the studies was Movies and Conduct (1933), in which more than fifteen hundred high school students wrote "autobiographies" of their experiences going to the movies.
