Palfreyman had attended Loew's 83rd St. Theatre to investigate hissing of PCA Seal. The Production Code Administration seal of approval was on all the films, feature and short, exhibited and there was no audience response to the seal, even though audience tended to be noisy and make remarks about the film. An usher said that hissing "was quite prevalent some time ago," largely by high school children who "were inclined to be obstreperous anyway," but that it had died out and ushers were under instructions to put a stop to it.
