"THE HYPOCRITES." A CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 25 February 1916

" THE HYPOCRITES." —' A CRITICISM. Dear Mr. Editor,—The great photo play which is to be exhibited before the Gilgandra public next Monday is one on which, from a standpoint of propriety, a difference of opinion exists. Whenever a character, and especially the main one concerned, thinks it necessary to defend herself, it suggests the possibility of advarse criticism being justified. Past exper ience teaches us that a man who loses ; his temper when accused is generally in the wrong. If it were not so, he could face his accusers with eqnau imity. Miss Margaret Edwards, who pla}rs the character of Truth, thinks it necessary to defend herself. That she brands all her anticipated critics hypocrites makes her case poor in deed, for this is the method of all ad vocates of unrestricted license. Miss Edwards, in admitting the possibility of her display giving offence, says: "If the nude give offence in one art, why not in an other?" We beg to differ, and to assert that the masterpieces of fa...
