Zola Film Banned in Portugal

The biographical film, “Zola,” in which Paul Muni plays the title role, though at first approved by the censorship for exhibition in Portugal, has since been banned, states the Lisbon correspondent of The Times.

It is castigated in the press as “Jewish and anti-military propaganda,” and the works of Zola himself are said to be an expression of the spirit in France which led to the very debacle he described and which a year ago again overtook that unhappy country. (The film was exhibited in the United States under the title, “The Life of Emile Zola.”)
