Sirs,
       In your letter of January 19, 1968 you requested a permit for the exhibition in original version of the American feature-length film titled:
                          HOLLYWOOD U.S.A
                       (MONDO HOLLYWOOD)
        I have the honor of informing you that the Commission of Control of motion picture films, after having examined this production on January 23rd in sub-commission and on March 12th in plenary session, has decided unfavorably concerning its exhibition.
"This film, in the opinion of certain experts of the Commission, presents an apology for a certain number of perversities, including drugs and homosexuality, and constitutes a danger to the mental health of the public by its visual aggressivity and the psychology of its editing.   The Commission proposes, therefore, its total interdiction."
     As a result of this notification I have decided to totally forbid the exhibition of said film.
     Please accept, dear Sirs, this expression of my distinguished sentiments.

                                        The Minister of Information
                                         (Signature)
                                         Georges GORSE
