"Bang?Bang! You're Dead!"

Goodman, Walter
November 1954
New Republic;11/1/54, Vol. 131 Issue 18, p12
The article criticises the crime and violence in television movies and juvenile delinquency in the U.S. Seeing constant brutality, viciousness and unsocial acts results in hardness and intense selfishness on the native temperament of the child. The movie producers and distributors can hardly be asked to alter the formula that is making them rich. Some 800 of these films are circulating around the country and the sources keep pumping more out. The small stations--the theoretically responsible licensees--won't do anything about it unless they're pushed hard.
