Comments:
EDITORIAL COMMENT: All this being collected before MPPDA annual meeting as evidence? Is the profanity clause the one attention is paid to because its violation is most clearly visible and undeniable, or is it because it causes particular offense? - the latter seems more probable. This also contains accounts of some films which may cause problems - worth comparing, e.g., the account of The Man Who Laughs with the protest letter at 04-1897.
