DECENCY IN MOTION PICTURES

Notes"" on the moral effect of the cinema which is still insufficiently controlled and censored. Claims that the function of art is to enoble, and that no exposure can serve as a cure-all. Condemns any vehicle based on a false standard such as the glorification of the criminal or sex stimulant. Has no practical suggestions to offer, finding any sort of censorship code ineffectual as the evil lies at source of production. Plea for public support and interest. Some of his points far-fetched -- a blue stocking turning bigot. Can't see market.
