The Argentine Ambassador has taken exception to a title in The Magic Flame referring to "Argentines, Levantines and Libertines." He has recently made a speech condemning U.S. films. Hays is concerned that "this kind of a contribution to that already embarrassing situation might very easily result in the banning of [Goldwyn] pictures, United Artists" pictures, and all American pictures from the Argentine." Goldwyn is prevailed upon to modify the title for future prints, and to correct existing export prints.
