... He left theatre (bottom) because he understood that "Formal Element" is much stronger in Film, nothing but FORM! "Form is Essense".

... Meyerhold struggled to revolutionize Theatre, Film was the Revolution.

... In Europe it was time of Dada and Sur-Realism...

... They felt that Hollywood, Hitler and Socialist Realism were advancing.
