Film came to be established as an art because masterpieces, such as the highly theatrical work of Chaplin , were produced in that medium . It is not the possi bili ty of purity or the efficient production of a unique effect that wins a medium a place among the arts , but the creation of interest­ ing , though often "impure , " works . The medium specificity theorist may also rely on the division of labor notion as a defensive gambi t .
