Spain Lifts Ban on Exhibition of “gentlemen’s Agreement”; “minor Changes” Made in Film

The American motion picture, “Gentlemen’s Agreement,” which deals with social anti-Semitism in the United States and which was banned in Spain last year, will be exhibited in that country beginning today, a dispatch from Madrid reported here. The dispatch said that “minor changes” had been made in the film.

The original ban on exhibition of the motion picture, which was imposed by the ecclesiastical member of the Film Censorship Board in Madrid, stipulated that Jews were not necessarily included in the Christian duty to “stimulate love among individuals, societies, nations and peoples.”
