I think I understand the distinction in the film industry between
"above the line" and "below the line" costs, but I wondered if anyone knew
the origin of those terms.
 
What "line" is actually involved--the *bottom* line, or something else?
 
When were these phrase first used?  Are they still current?
 
Thanks in advance.
