Titanic Moving Pictures Barred in Bridgeport

The Evening Post

 

Bridgeport, Conn.- Superintendent of police Birmingham yesterday issued an order prohibiting the exhibition of so-called Titanic pictures in moving picture theaters here. One local theater had advertised such an exhibition yesterday. Supt. Birmingham declares that such pictures are “palpably fakes” and he takes the stand also that “unnecessary recalling of such a horror is demoralizing”.
