Attorney General Cummings and the Department of Justice are strongly opposed to any film depicting the overthrow of a democratic government, particularly through the use of armed warfare. This refers to the idea for a motion picture about the overthrow of government by a super-criminal proposed by Selznick and Fritz Lang. Pettijohn thinks that the Department of Justice ought not to approve motion pictures at all.
