Censor

'The Wowsers Tackle the Movies," by James R. Quirk.provides biographical information on Chase, Crafts, Upshaw, and mentions the activities of MPPDA and National Board of Review (NBR), and the people they use, including quotes from Brill on the mind of the censor in the 1926 hearings. Suggests the real problem is mediocrity, and that this is not confined to movies in American life, but that the excesses of Von Stroheim and DeMille have been contained. A collection of amusing instances of censorship.
