There has been a mistranslation of an address given by the Pope -- confusing the words control and regulation in relation to motion picture quality and censorship. There is a fear that it will be interpreted to mean that the Pope believes in government control when it is believed he agrees with industry regulation. Includes two press clippings carrying the misinformation.
