Ben Kern, movie critic for the Min- neatiolis Tribune, had a column on the subject recently, tti ; part, this is what he had to say and it coincides with my own Views. "Well, I don't happen to believe in censorship, any censor* ship at all. not even of hard-core pornograPhv, because J feel that anyone, be he 6, 16, or 66, will find his own hard'Core pornography (live variety) in the alley, behind the barn or somewhere, and the censors' labeling it as something snecial is going to give it a lot of allure that it called .'Love'. "Through self-imposed censor* ship the film industry put a stop-watch limit oft the length of celluloid kisses (the exact limit eludes my memory). This was.done, to avert outside censorship and escape the wrath of the blue-noses. "AS TfMl went on. however, it became apparent that one doesn't purify or even sterilize the silver screen \vith a stopwatch. There were other aspects to the problem. "For examole, men had a Way of making indecent overtures to women, and sometimes even vice versa, and this fact of human existence- found its way into o'>r literature. •"With the 'talkies' it began to find its way into our movie scenarios, too, although the overtures were curiously unverbal. The playboy would get Connie Bennett- or Joan Crawford as far as the door to a room. "It!s a little like the old days of Gilbert and Garbo, except doesn't inherently possess.

Garvey, remark- at least one look, before he shuffles off this mortal coil, at whatever temptation he is expected to bs resisting. My prediction is that he will quickly be disenchanted, if it is bad art. The human entity quickly adjustsi itself to ethical shocks but never to the tiresome, the shoddy; the fraudulent. "A clergyman remarked to me, 'If you quote me .on this I'll deny it, but I found Never On, Sunday hilarious'. "Of course he did, because it was good art. Melina Mercouri played a prostitute as a complete human being. One felt better equipped to face life, • and even th,e mysteries of eternity, after having .seen her in the role. ,; Mr Kern continues: "Back in the days of the silent movies, ^John Gilbert and "Veun§ LevtfV' and "Slack Like Mi" apeni Sunday at Ihe Algona Gretai Garbo furor ..\irith a lot of overlpng created quite a kissing and smooching in a film ed to me, 'This day of the yardstick is past," "What we now have is a revulsion against a couple of badly concaved and badly made movies, both of which tijesome- ly belabor, .in an effort to be funny, man's unfortunate biological propensities to make indecent proposals to women, et cetera and vice versa. "The Catholics, whose Legion of Decency is a badly maligned and misunderstood organization (partly because of its name, I suppose), are going strong for educating their "members up to the best in film art, and I hope they succeed: "Moira Walsh, a film reviewer for 'America,' a Catholic'pub lication, for 15 years, sets forth a cinematic philosophy: ' . . .
