Storyline

The focus is on the early years of the talkies in Hollywood and particularly some of its biggest female stars including Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich and Mae West. The Hays office was in a constant battle battle with the movie studios to delete any sexually suggestive scenes or dialog but the movies moguls knew what would sell and pushed it to the limit. As the films got racier however, politicians and social groups began to demand a greater degree of censorship changing the movies for years to come. Written by garykmcd
