The letter from Tom Brandon quoted in the epigraph is in file D40, Tom Brandon Archives, Film Studies Center, Museum of Modern Art, New York (hereafter cited as Tom Brandon Archives).

1. As of 2010, only a relatively small amount of work had been conducted regarding U.S. Left film criticism, and a majority of the studies appeared more than two decades ago. See Myron Osborn Lounsbury, The Origins of American Film Criticism, 1909–1939; William Alexander, Film on the Left: American Documentary Film from 1931 to 1942; Russell Campbell, Cinema Strikes Back: Radical Filmmaking in the United States, 1930–1942; and Anna Everett, Returning the Gaze: A Genealogy of Black Film Criticism, 1909–1949.
