Albany, New York - Monday, January 23, 1939: The French film, "Remous," was shown Friday to five judges of the Appellate Division in proceedings in the attempt by Arthur Mayer and Joseph Burstyn to get a license to screen it in New York State. The picture has twice been denied a license, first in August, 1936, when it was rejected as being "indecent," "immoral" and tending to "corrupt morals." It was again rejected in November, 1937. In March last it was screened for the Board of Regents who, on April 14, disapproved application for a license. Arthur Garfield Hayes, counsel for Mayer and Burstyn at yesterday's proceedings, ridiculed the objections of Irwin Esmond and the Regents to certain scenes, pointing out that the film was French and would appeal only to an educated audience. Counsel for the Regents based his plea on the film's theme of sex-frustration, arguing that it would be unwise public policy to show it to all classes of people. See more
