More Silly Censorship
('|NE of Ernie Pyle’s columns from Italy I old of the death
of Captain Henry Waskow. It was one of the best
things Pyle ever wrote, anti one of the most moving and
memorable stories in the tremendous day-to-day literature
of this war. No one who read it could very well forget it
For those who didn’t, it was the story of a well loved
young officer, killed during a day’s fighting in the moun-
tains, whose body was brought down the steep trail at
night by muleback, and laid on the ground in the moon-
light with the other dead of that day’s battle.
Ernie told how the men who had loved Waskow came
by, one by one, to look at him for the last time. He told
what they said—brief, awkward, grief-filled phrases, wrung
from them by sorrow and by bitter hatred of the war and
the enemv that had robbed them of another triend.
It was inevitable that this story, which Pyle told so
beautifully, would be incorporated into the forthcoming
film based on his writings. And it was equally inevitable
that the dialog should be taken intact from the original
story, which happened to lie one of those rare pieces ot
prose that can’t be edited without being spoiled.
* * *
ALL right and proper, so far. Hut then the blue nose ot
the Hays office intrudes itself and tells Lester Cowan,
the film’s producer, that it cannot approve the picture
because it regards some of the dialog in the Captain Was-
kow scene as expressions of profanity.
As we recall the story, three (IIs used the word order
of a profane phrase to invoke God’s punishment upon the
causes of the grief which they felt so profoundly and ex-
pressed so simply. They were soldiers, not eulogists. And
considering the circumstance and intent of their worths, it
seems a little blasphemous of the Hays office to brand
those words as blasphemy.
* ■* *
IT seems to us about time that interpreters ot the liny
* code be allowed to adopt a more adult attitude, or that
the code itself Is* changed to permit some differentiation
between tastelessness or vulgarity and strong words uttered
in a moment of deep emotion.
This is the second recent instance in which the Hays
office has Itehaved as if this tragic world were a Holly-
wood set. It has objected to a “damn” in a film dealing
with the Nazis’ mass murdei of Russian civilians. Vet, if
memory serves, it permitted a “damn'* by Clark Gable
somewhere in the interminable footage of “Gone With the
Two major film producers, Warner Brothers and
Usited Artists, have lately left the Hays fold. This could
he a hint to the guardian of movie morals that the time
has come to wake up and grow up.
