Report of examiner, "Embrujo Antillano," 1946

Report of the examiner of the Motion Picture Division, license granted by the Motion Picture Division, list of eliminations to the script, report of the Motion Picture Division examiner, letter from Motion Picture Division to Clasa-Mohme, order for a copy, and application for a license to be screened in New York State of the Cuban film "Embrujo Antillano" ("Charm of the Antilles"), 1946. The report indicated that this was the reviewer's second screening of the film, but otherwise had no recommendations. Another report recommended several eliminations to the film before it be allowed to be screened in New York State. The license was given to Clasa Mohme, Inc. The list was revised from the original after a rescreening by reviewers. Several cuts were required, for reasons given as "indecent"; "immoral"; and "tends to corrupt morals." The letter explained that in order to be given a license for the film to be screened in New York State, the studio would need to make several eliminations to it, for reasons given as "indecent"; "immoral"; and "tends to corrupt morals." The application was sent by Clasa-Mohme, Inc., the distributor of the film.
