8th June, 1932. 13th May, 1952 Advertisement for the first release in Adelaide, S.A. on the 28th May, 1952.
Frankenstein ( 1931 ) was passed for public exhibition in Australia by the Australia censor but was then banned for exhibition in South Australia by the South Australian censor. The film was eventually released in South Australia in Adelaide in 1952.
There were other cases where films were banned in one Australian state only after being originally passed by the Australian censor. Probably the two most famous examples apart from Frankenstein were All Quiet On The Western Front ( 1930 ) banned in Victoria and When The Kellys Rode banned in N.S.W in 1934 and eventually released there in 1948.
From "'Australian Censorship History" -- ''In 1972, apparently the final states of N.S.W. and S. A. authorised Commonwealth Censors to act on the States' behalf ( all other States had done so in or before 1949 ).
