Influence of screen

Documents on influence of the screen include comments on the influence on overseas trade, and the enlightening effects of motion picture viewing, especially on far-flung people. Many entries involve the MPPDA fending off accusations (often made in the press) that motion pictures stimulate crime. The MPPDA actively investigates some specific cases -- e.g.. Trotti visits court proceedings relating to one juvenile murder case and makes a detailed report exonerating motion pictures. Includes list of movies shown during one month at Nashua, N.J.
