Seen at the ALGONA By T, H. C, This being a rather quiet week at the Algona, we might take a quick look at the new code for failure to win blessing from the code administrators. Imported films, not subject to the code, attracted larger audiences, and the old code became more and More irrelevant. No one could possibly believe any more that the Motion Picture Association was effectively guarding the morals of American moviegoers, if it ever Was able to do so. There's still a whiff of this pretense in the liberalized, much abbreviated, new code. Films that the Motion Picture industry. AI fail to get the code approval still significant editorial from the will be released, and many of National Observer, September ' '" '-••-• 26 issue is quite "pat." We quote the entire editorial. "LT. ROBIN CHUSOl, U.1N." AT THf ALOONA THIATRI THURSDAY THRU TUESDAY now super- the associa- "In our society the parents are the arbiters of family conduct." True or not, these words—the most important words in the new movie production code—ought to be true. Even if parents have by and large abdicated their authority (we don't believe they have), there's no one else who can take up the job. Not the schools, not the churches, not any government—and certainly not the Motion Picture Association of America. In the previous, seded movie code, tion pompously stated that movies "may be directly responsible for spiritual and moral progress, for higher types of social life, and for much correct thinking." On the basis of this flated view of the industry's influence for good or evil, the old code proceeded to an elaborate list of thou shalt nots, many unr intentionally quite amusing. The results in recent years . have been laughable. Any movie that didn't measure up, or down to the code was released anyway sometimes with its advertising campaign based largely on it: hem will sell tickets. Foreign ilms that don't square with the ode will continue to play Amer- can theaters. This is probably unavoidable, and it really doesn't matter very much. What does natter is the industry's decision to provide a classification service, the clear marking of adult "ilms .as "suggested for mature audiences." Other agencies provide more elaborate movie classifications lists, but none can match the movie industry for mblicity resources. Now a glance at a movie ad can tell a parent whether the product of a major American studio, at least, is suit able for an impressionable youngster, or was made for an audience with tastes that don't run to Mary Poppins or The Singing Nun. It should work. If it doesnt', the fault will lie not with the movie industry but with the real '^arbiters of family conduct." A detailed account of the various standards by which films will be judged is as follows: ' "The basic dignity and value of human life shall be respected and upheld; Restraint shall be exercised in portraying the taking of life. Evil, sin, crime, and wrong- JUST FORE FUN — Dick Van Dyke, as a stranded Navy pilot, recruits a chimp as his caddy in Walt Disney's comedy-adventure, "Lt. Robin Crusoe, V. S. N."
