01:23:28 MCU Eric Johnston (SOF): Our production code is not a document that says you cannot film that; what it does say is you can film that if you abide by basic standards of morality & decency. This is precisely what our system of self-regulation seeks to do. It preserves diversity, variety; it keeps the screen open for the treatment of any subject of life, of literature, of drama. But there is no place for governmental censorship in America. There is no human being that can tell in advance what the rest of Americans should see, or not see, read or not read, hear or not hear. Why not let the American people make up their own minds? That s what we ve done since we were a Nation. It works better than any other system that I know of; its the only doctrine that is worth living by.

[Eric Johnston HUAC Testimony]

VS MPAA President Eric Johnston testifies before HUAC, comments on part of J. Edgar Hoover s previous testimony re: influence of motion picture industry and Communism.

15:29:05 Pictures which are produced under a democratic form of government...are bound to convey some of the viriilty, the zest and the joy of living which are characteristic of the life of our country, these are the qualities that other peoples need most at this time and these are the qualities that make American films hated and feared by communists everywhere...

15:29:39 I think Mr Hoover undoubtedly had evidence to that effect...there are communists in Hollywood [but] their propoganda has not reached the screen...

15:30:57 Johnston talks about labour unions, guilds and contracts; management vs technicians in cutting rooms. I think [communists] should be exposed...but I don t think Mr Rankin we re ready for concentration camps yet in America, men have to earn a living...

15:34:48 Mr Rankin: I can tell you now, you need a house cleaning, and you need it very badly, and I think you re the man to start it.
