This essay examines the role of film viewing and film criticism in the early intellectual formation of the British art critic and curator Lawrence Alloway. Drawing on archival material from the Alloway Papers at the Getty Research Institue, including plans for an early unpublished book on the subject of film, it argues that Alloway's interest in film and film criticism anticipated many of his later views on art, art criticism, and the politics of the art world.
