Sues for $500,000 Over Movies of Unclothed Natives By Associated Press CHICAGO, July 7 — The Eastman Kodak Company was sued for $550,000 yesterday because it refused on grounds of obscenity to return 200 feet of colored movie film to an explorer. Denver M. Wright 1 Lindworth Lane, St. Louis, who took the films during a scientific expedition to the Amazon river region of South America, set the film's value at $500,000 and asked an additional $50,000 damages. Wright's suit was filed in Federal Court by his son, Edward, a St. Louis attorney. The 16 millimeter movies were sent to the film company's Chicago laboratory for developing. Attorney Wright said the film held by the Eastman Kodak Com­ pany, contained shots of nude members of a primitive tribe. K<: said it was part of 8,000 feet taken by his father on the expedition. Attonrey Wright said the film company told him it was refusing to return the film because they would be violating the law if they surrendered it, even if the owner came to Chicago to pick it up. The suit claims the 200 feet were "an integral part of a movie which is the only recorded evidence of a primitive tribe which few white men have seen." Earl C. Kinney, manager of the Eastman Kodak laboratory in Chicago, declined comment on the suit.
