Indecent Pictures

This cartoon, which first appeared in the Chicago Daily News, was reprinted in Film Index. At the time, Richard Strauss' Salome was also creating something of a scandal, but because it took place at the opera house, the police did not intervene. The film industry would long complain about the double standard.

Clyde Martin's column of 3 December 1910 mentions the police action against the immoral picture shows.
