The cases involve: —The Commercial Pictures Cor poration which is seeking to in validate an order of the regents of the University of New York, the State's censorship agency, banning the showing of the French-made movie “La Ronde” on the grounds that it is immoral. The New York courts have upheld the action of the censors, w’hich deemed the pic ture offensive to public morals. —Superior Films, Inc., which is seeking a reversal of Ohio court rulings upholding the State s cen sorship agency, the Division of Film Censorship of the Depart ment of Education, which refused to license a movie called “M”. The agency held the picture could lead to serious increase in immorality and crime among unstable persons of any age level because the por trayal of a child killer emphasized complete perversion without serv ing any valid educational purpose. In both cases, the film distribut ing agencies are relying principal ly on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Burstyn case, which lifted the ban on the controversial movie. “The Miracle,” in New York State. The film agencies contend that in the Burstyn case the court decided that motion picture cen sorship was an unconstitutional abridgement of free speech and free press. The New York and Ohio courts disagreed with the stand, holding that the decision did not outlaw censorship of mov ies on all grounds. The movie “La Ronde” has been evaluated in Class C—condemned -and “M” in Class -morally ob jectionable in part for all—by the National Legion of Decency.
