MacFaddens complaint about Morocco includes an editorial he wrote but did not publish on the subject, and Hays' reply. The editorial denounces Dietrich as "a faded-out, hipless actress ... this hipless, emaciated young woman .. this white-skinned, thin legged, devitalized heroine ... a comparison of her appearance on the screen with the posters advertising a voluptuous contour of limbs and hips would indicate that at least the advertising manager had some intelligence as to the fitness of things." He does not like the story, either.
