  • the prince's rating of the film Storm Center

    In 1956, Taradash directed Storm Center, a moral fable about book-banning. "Storm Center is the quintessential anti-censorship film, offering a very strong, positive image of the librarians played by both Davis and Kim Hunter. Though the storyline is dated and the town's emotional reversal is somewhat unbelievable, Davis is convincing as she ponders the question 'How do you get rid of a book?" - Film Librarian
