Long Description:

DECEMBER 2, 1930. Letter Frank Wilstach to J.H. Gallagher, Director of Public Relations, Columbia Pictures, New York."... It may interest you to know that a representative of the Catholic editors was in yesterday. The purpose of his complaint was that pictures in Hollywood had been cleaned up but that the advertising had been dirtied up in the East. Furthermore, Cardinals Hayes and Mundelein in Chicago had condemned the theater and indecent books, but did not mention the motion pictures. These two high dignitaries considered, very naturally, that advertising such as this is a betrayal not only of the motion picture industry, but of them , who had approved of both codes -- that is, the Producers Code and the Advertising Code. The Catholic editors, lately in session, expressed themselves as highly indignant in consequence of the dirty advertising for various pictures now on view.
