Thirteen feature pictures, or one per cent. of the total reviewed in America by the Legion of Decency, were found wholly objectionable, and put on the C (condemned) list for 1937, a recently published survey shows.
Features reviewed numbered 1,271; of this number 61 per cent, were found unobjectionable for general patronage; 30 per cent. unobjectionable for adult patronage; 8 per cent. objectionable in part; 1 per cent. wholly objectionable.
Of the pictures reviewed, 1,043 were American made, and 228 produced abroad, in 13 foreign languages. Six of the condemned pictures were made ip America, and seven made abroad. They are:
Adolph Armstrong, Amours de Toni, Carnival in Flanders, Damaged Goods, Damaged Lives, Ecstacy, Elysia, Gambling with Souls, Living Dangerously, Lucrezia Borgia.
Pilaf's of Youth, Private Life of Henry VIII, Slaves in Bondage.
The Legion of Decency now issues a weekly report on films, for the information of all Catholics. Recently the pledge to avoid indecent pictures was renewed in all the churches in the United States.
