This chapter discusses the arrival of the age classification bill. The interest in age classification shown by many states and organizations indicates the rising frustration of those who believed the Supreme Court and the state courts were going too far in expanding free speech rights to filmmakers. Despite its popularity, Virginia was the only state that adopted the modified age classification system in 1963.

Keywords:   age classification, Supreme Court, free speech, Virginia, 1963
