FILM PICKETING

CAUSES

STIR  

London, August 22. "A bunch of outlaws" was the term applied by Mr. William Heineman, vice- president of Eagle-Lion, to the American "Sons of Liberty" who are picket- ing cinemas that show British films in the U.S.

Eagle-Lion are the distributors     for J. Arthur Rank productions.  

Heineman added that some ex-     hibitors, especially those who were Jewish, were influenced by the "unlawful pressure" of the Sons of Liberty.

Sir Alexander Korda, the British producer, has decided to send no more films to America until the picketing of American cinemas by the Sons of Liberty stops.  

The league is an anti-British body formed by Professor John     Amertenko, who was not allowed to stay in Britain.

FREE OF BOYCOTT

Sir Alexander said: "The Sons of Liberty have not stopped. Bri- tish cloth and Scotch whisky from being sold, but films are taken off immediately."

It was reported that picketed films are: "An Ideal Husband," "Anna Karenina," and "Mine Own Executioner."

Korda added: "It would appear that some Amercan interests might use the boycott as retaliation for the British Government's quota   limiting American films in Britain to 35 in every 100."'
