Shurlock helps and he almost qualifies as a magician because he especially those of foreign made films, are largely indifferent to the approval seal and many do not even apply for one.

A film called "The Miracle." made in Italy by Ro berto Rossellini and starring Anna Magnani, was brought into court in New York on a charge of being sacrilegious. It was the story of a simple-minded peasant girl who became pregnant and thought that her seducer was Saint Joseph.
