Influence of screen

Hays has expressed a desire that the MPPDA should continue to take pains to follow up press reports that motion pictures have inveigled children into criminal activities. There is a large amount of material on this in the file. Again, in each case, it transpires that the connection between the crime and the movies is spurious -- usually an invention of the reporter for the sake of a good story.
