EDITORIAL COMMENT: See also 06-1160 to 06-1166 (Censorship - Canada) on difficulties over The Trial of Mary Dugan

Canada censorship. Censorship problems in Canada over MGM's The Big City -- recalled in Montreal and Quebec after originally being passed with deletions. William Orr 11 July 1929 suggests that this may be because an exhibitor restored the material deleted by the censor board. The question is, how did they get hold of it? The film has already completed its first run, but Orr estimates that it has another $4,000 to earn -- and for that much Hays should get in touch with Prime Minister Taschereau -- although this doesn't seem to have happened.
