Violations of profanity Don'ts in The Lady Lies. "The Company members have been very careful to avoid these definite violations, and I am sure you will not want this to pass uncorrected by Paramount. In the discussions which have occurred in this matter, my attention has been called to the fact that The Cock Eyed World, which is very strong and being much discussed because of its content, has absolutely avoided any direct violation.
