Other ratings In the system remain unchanged, thd£ J/elng G -- General Audiences, al' ages admitted; R -- Restricted Under 17 company ing r e q u i r e s a c parents or adul guardian; and X -- No one under 17 admitted.

The project sounds like a rca winner, and, a lot of fun, to boot. Hopefully, it might be the beginning of further f l i c k frolicks for old-time movie fans.
