Three West Coast theaters have decided to
substitute another film in place of their scheduled
showing of Charlie Chaplin's "Limelight." This
occurred, according to Time, after the theaters
were visited by representatives of the Holly
wood Legion post.
It would seem that the Legion's Un-American
committees are not only interested in what books
the American citizen is allowed to read, but also
in what entertainment he may choose to see.
Some may welcome such action. After all,
sometimes it is a little easier to let others think
of keeping with the traditional democratic con
cept of free thought.
The Legion move apparently stems from the
still incomplete investigation of Chaplin by the
Department of Justice.
