Long Description:

Breen to Hays, asking him officially to instruct Breen to give out all opinions in writing, and to discuss projects only with the officially authorized representative of the producing company. Emmanuel Cohen has been asking them not to put anything in writing about the new Mae West film. "We are at a loss to understand why we get these requests, unless it may be that the studio officials dislike to have our negative opinion on record."
