Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25, No. 7. 1962.




Four new films, including one 16mm feature (Unashamed), were subject to outright refusal of certificates in 1958. No appeal was lodged in respect of the 16mm rejection, the other three films were reviewed by the Appeal Board. The rejection of The Wild Party and The Delinquents was upheld and Chained For Life was released with a restricted certificate after some cutting.

Another film (No Orchids For Miss Blandish), the rejection of which had been upheld by the board early in 1949, was again submitted to the Censor. On re-examination he again rejected it and no further appeal was lodged against this decision. In another case, a feature (Cell 2455 Death Row) previously banned on appeal in 1955 was, after virtual re-editing by the company concerned, submitted to the Censor in its new form. After some further cutting it was approved with an (A) certificate.
