German Film Withdrawn from Canada Theatres when Jews Protest

The German film, “The Dancing Duchess” has been withdrawn from Canadian motion-picture theatres as a result of protests from the anti-Nazi boycott committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress, it was announced today by Jack Mandell, secretary.

The film was scheduled to play at a chain of theatres here following approval by the government censor board and a showing in Winnipeg. Representations were made to Peerless Films Ltd., its distributor, which thereupon ordered it withdrawn.
