KPIX News report by Belva Davis from August 26th 1969 featuring a press conference by the Mitchell Brothers, who claim that their films need to be considered in context, represent creative works of art and as Artie Mitchell puts it: "We don't feel that they're obscene at all. In fact ... they're what's happening today." Ends with a press conference by two attorneys, who appear confident that San Francisco's recent practice of arresting the patrons of adult movie theaters will end because it's difficult for the law to clearly define what is meant by "obscenity." Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
