Game Most Cosmic Player (MCP) Potted Psalm (1946)
directed by James Broughton &
Sidney Peterson
In the program notes accompanying a screening of the Peterson/Broughton film, The Potted Psalm, (this game's most cosmic player) Peterson wrote, "It is perhaps wanting too much from art to expect it to perform the kinds of miracles ordinarily demanded of world statesman." The admixture of politics and art, rich in history and myth, is a theme that Paul Arthur is always sensitive to in A Line of Sight. The political/cultural connections are not lost on Sitney in Visionary Film. The very proficient performance of The Potted Psalm which helped secure a victory for the Sitney book chapters in this cosmic baseball game, can be used to confirm the observation that art is a political process and all politics is bifocal.
