Ads to Be Stripped of Porno

Download PDF for this date

The Tel Aviv Municipality has decided to censor advertisements for movies that emphasize sex. It will establish a special vice control squad to police movie posters on private and public billboards to make sure they contain no depictions of sex or violence. The decision followed complaints that pornography was being advertised in public places. The city officials also decreed that still shots for movies must consist only of scenes passed by the censors and that they can be displayed only outside the movie houses where the films are being shown.
