Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 27, 1962, Mason City, Iowa North Daily Newspaper Editod for ttw VOL 102 The newspaper that makes all ITnltol Prtt InternatinalU Wife MASQN tITY IOWA TUESDAY HOME EDITION neig hbbfs lOc a Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection One No Geneva talks end with some gams is t Emphasis on sex violence Advertising the movies By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Research Bureau WASHINGTON The in creasing frankness of motion pictures domestic as well as foreign is accompanied by a kind of turbulence in advertis ing that is raising questions within the industry itself Display ads are increasingly picturing couples in horizontal positions couples inbed wom en being struck by men and seminude women particular ly for some curious reason women in slips The copy grows constantly more violent The emphasis on sex and violence is by no means limited to the types of film which are known in the trade as sexers and shockers To be sure what Variety calls the sophisticated nudie film is still very much with us A Washington theatre is advertising Erotica a Sextet of lusty stories These are entitled The Bikini Bust ers Nudists on the High Ian6cehtsVThe Nymphs the Bearand the Bare and Beauties Bubbles andI H2O The whole thing is described as from the cutting room floor of The Immoral Mr Teas a notoriously tasteless quickie And a New York paper known for its squeamish advertising standards recently carried ah ad by an art theatre ior a particularly jejune sexer named The Last oMhe Penitents which failed to mentionthe fact that the film was more than 20 years old But as Variety points out in a recent issue the same tech niques are being applied to high class picturesIt might be difficult to associate F Scott Fitzgerald with slogans like KICKS TO BUY SOULS TO SELL HOW THE RECKLESS SET LIVES IT UP AND LOVES IT but these are actually being used to sell Tender is the Night A picture produced by the man who made Going My Way and telling the story of two priests and a native girl is advertised by this copy TOR TURED How much can a man endure RAVISHED Is this the price a woman must pay to stay alive SHAMED How right is murder in selfde fense A film telling the story of an American widow and her Roman gigolo gets the brilliant line Young enough to be her son Old enough to be her A picture 1 a i d in a bordello features a cat roam ing about a house which is certainly somewhere on the near side of subtlety The foreign films the art theatres have taken to empha sizing sensation over quality Thus this line about a current Italian number The moral bankruptcy of desperate youth brought stunningly shockingly to the screen An ad for a French film which has had much censorship trouble states in three ways that this version is uncut And then it brags that a New York critic described it as An ex ercise in lewdness por nographic Now that Hollywood is com peting with Europe in adult themes sex perversion is no longer ruled out by the pro duction code authority a cer tain frankness can be expected in advertising Some ads for example state honestly that a picture deals with homosexual ity But witness this caveat from an add dealing with prostitu tion THIS IS AN ADULT PICTURE Parents should use discretion in permitting the im mature to see it Erbe breaks ground Spadeful of worms DES MOINES Norman Tuesday broke ground for the new Jl5 million Iowa Employment Securities Commission building and came up with a spadeful of dirt crawling with fishworms The governor handed orie of the worms to commissioner Henry Carter
