Abstract

This article discusses the movie boycotts of 1934. These were started because religious groups, especially the Catholic Church, were concerned about the sexual and violent content of movies and how it was affecting children. The article states that it is unsure whether or not these boycotts and protests were agreed upon by the majority of Americans at the time, or if there was an amount of bias in reports from the time.
