Naked Truth

File relating to the sex-hygiene movie The Naked Truth. Includes an article in The Medical Journal and Record that supports its exhibition and a list of endorsements by churchmen, social workers etc. There is an opposing memo from Milliken with evidence of protests and arguing that the movie should not be shown anywhere. Hays causes the film to be shut down in San Francisco during a convention of Presbyterian ministers, to the anger of Samuel Cummings. Some correspondence pertains to restrictions on the treatment of venereal disease on the screen.
