Before R-ratings, anti-heroes and gratuitous violence and nudity in mainstream Hollywood movies, there was the Hays Code. As a form of self-policing the industry, virtually every movie released up until 1968 needed that stamp of approval if it wanted distribution. And while it helped produce all of Old Hollywood’s true classics for several decades, it often included ridiculous rulings like not being able to show or flush a toilet on screen, not allowing married couples to be shown sleeping in the same bad or always making sure criminals, even protagonists of the movie, got punished in the end.
But before the Hays Code was nothing, and it was a gloriously weird, scandalous time for the movies. Certain Hollywood films in the early ’30s as “talkies” were rapidly taking hold have since been labeled “Pre-Code” films that never received Hollywood’s stamp of approval.

Hi James Gunn!
I just wanted to take a moment here and thank you for being so active on Facebook, Twitter and the internets, from talking about things you’re doing over the weekend to posting awesome fan art for Guardians of the Galaxy. Sometimes directors get too deep into a movie. When Spike Lee was making Oldboy, he didn’t even pay his poster designers, »
Marvel just announced that "Sin City" star Rosario Dawson is set to join the cast of the upcoming "Daredevil" TV series, which stars Charlie Cox as the title character. It's unclear what role she's play, but there's some speculation that it's Night Nurse. "Rosario Dawson is one the most charismatic, talented and powerful actresses in Hollywood, so she was always at the top of our list for 'Marvel.s Daredevil,'" said Marvel. "Her role in the series is absolutely critical to Matt Murdock's journey to become the hero we know as Daredevil." "Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The show's thirteen episodes will be available on Netflix in 2015. »
I must have been about 12 years old when I first saw Tarzan and His Mate. I loved the Tarzan movies. Tarzan was the undisputed King of the Jungle and was the greatest, Cheetah was man’s best friend, Boy was annoying, and Jane was the Queen of the Jungle and a young male’s introduction to the allure of the female. The uncensored version, with a naked Jane silhouetted while changing clothes in a backlit tent and the spectacular underwater ballet scene would have been a revelation to me; Tarzan and Jane are frolicking in their favorite swimming hole, Tarzan in his usual loincloth and Jane naked – not naked from the waste up, or presumed naked as they hid her behind some lake flora or rocks – Jane was naked.
