N.Y. Supreme Court - Hinman's ruling that newsreels cannot be placed outside the control of the Motion Picture Commission censor. Reasons: a movie is an attractive spectacle, not a medium of opinion, and therefore unlike a newspaper, etc. Hinman is worried that without censorship, "If the thing were true and real, they would reveal it in its utter nakedness."
