Supreme court allowing states and communities to decide their own standards of obscenity. Mike Nichols carnal knowledge Quot was ruled obscene in Albany ga., and an Appeal is pending before the supreme court.

At least one filmmaker believes there is a trend toward implicit is explicit sex on tha screen for aesthetic reasons says Tom cries director of Quot the hawaiians Quot and a Blip a live always Felt that graphic sex does a disservice to the film and it counterproductive. I base that on my belief that the american audience in particular is not ready to sit through a sex scene it takes them out of the Story and makes each person aware of himself. Quot this is not any moral abjuration i simply believe and most directors and producers agree that it just does i work to put sex scenes in another filmmaker.
