A Philadelphia city district attorney warned the distributor of the film that showing it would violate a state law making it criminal to show any film of "lascivious, sacrilegious, obscene, indecent, or immoral nature". The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas upheld this action on appeal. Eventually reversed by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
