Additional text in Transcription. EDITORIAL COMMENT: A good instance of a title creating a problem - together with the prologue by Ben Lindsay, which, MPPDA officials insist, has no significant bearing on the film which follows it, which is just a standard romance - but which poses particular problems for the Catholics.

A Gotham production called Companionate Marriage is capitalizing on controversy generated by a book of the same name by Judge Ben Lindsay. There is concern at the MPPDA about how the Catholics will react, particularly since H.B. Warner, who played Jesus in King of Kings, is in it. A detailed synopsis of the film is included; apart from the title it seems to be largely innocuous. Russell sees it as a cautionary story with links with the sex-hygiene pictures.
