The motion picture, “Prejudice,” produced by the Protestant Film Commission and the Anti-Defamation League and depicting bigotry in the U.S., was previewed here last night by a select audience of 1,000 clerical and lay leaders of all faiths. The showing, one of 100 similar previews held in 100 cities throughout the country, evoked high praise for the film which will be exhibited commercially in motion picture theatres in all parts of the U.S.

(Rep. Emanuel Celler protested yesterday to Army Undersecretary Tracy Voorhees against the Army’s decision to bar public exhibition of the film, “Nuremberg–Its Lesson for Today,” which is described as a powerful indictment against anti-Semitism. Congressman Cellar asserted that the film “should be shown throughout the country in the interests of spiking anti-Semitism.”)
