Snakes on a Mise en Scéne

An actual letter to the editor that I found in the New York Times for June 18, 1922:

Rats and Mice in Movies.
May I ask why it seems necessary to feature rats and mice so conspicuously in moving pictures? They are as repulsive to many as reptiles, yet snakes are seldom seen in pictures.

Longmeadow, Mass., June 8, 1922
