Decisions like this pass alsolutely unnoticed as a rule—certainly there has been no uproar yet on behalf of Shock Corridor, as there was, to some extent, on behalf of The Wild Ones. It is intolerable that the censor should be able to act in such a clandestine way, so that hardly anybody knows which films he has turned down and for what reasons.
