DW Griffith -- White Rose Now Under Ban in Ohio -- November 6, 2023

Motion Picture News, 03-November-1922

I have never seen The White Rose, which was shot on locations in the south. Mae Marsh had worked with Griffith since the Biograph. Ivor Novello was born in Wales. He was a playwright, a composer and singer. Someone called him "a minor league Noel Coward." Carol Dempster, Griffith's protégé, also played a leading role.

The Ohio Censor Board passed The White Rose in July, and then banned it in October because it was immoral.
