Storyline

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Peter Fonda host an examination of the history of decency standards for movies, starting in 1922 with the hiring of Will Hays. When studios ignored the code early in the Depression, Catholics established the Legion of Decency, Hays hired Joseph Breen, and the code got muscle, with an impact on films as diverse as "King Kong" and "The Little Princess." Jane Russell and others discuss the code, cleavage, and the bullet bra in the 1950s. Baker and Wallach comment on the "Baby Doll" controversy. In the late 1960s comes a new classification system. Scorsese discusses it's application to "Taxi Driver." A look at "Carnal Knowledge" follows. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cheap and poorly constructed--you can find better documentaries on the subject than this one.
20 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was very interested in seeing a documentary about the history of censorship in Hollywood. After all, movies back in the 'good old days' were FAR dirtier than most folks would imagine--with topics such as adultery, homosexuality, extreme violence and nudity! Yep...these films were often VERY different than we'd have expected our grandparents and great-grandparents to watch. Unfortunately, however, most of this is barely discussed in this indifferent film. No discussion of gays--just a solid focus on sex...and a bit on drugs. Unfortunately, many of the best examples of these pre-Code excesses are never even mentioned. My assumption why they never discussed "Tarzan and His Mate" and many of the other films is that they didn't own the rights to the pictures--so they focused more on films in the public domain. This really shows, as the prints are often pretty bad--and the whole thing comes off as mildly interesting when it SHOULD have been a lot more exciting. About the only parts I really did like were a few clips of excised portions of classic films--and I sure wanted a lot more of this. Worth seeing, perhaps, but there simply are better films out there on the topic--and my advice is to see them instead. "Complicated Women" and "Thou Shalt Not: Sex, Sin and Censorship in Pre-Code Hollywood".
