Protest Against Anti-semitic Titles in Film

January 11, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The local Jewish press sharply criticizes the Austrian moving picture, “New Year’s Eve in Paris,” which is now being shown here.

It is asserted that the titles contain numerous anti-Semitic references. Particular objection is taken to an inscription referring to a scene in New York: “Chosen people reign in New York.”
