Revisiting Hollywood Before The Hays Code
"Between the end of the silent era in the late 1920s and the start of Hollywood's golden age in the mid-1930s, Americans embraced a broad range of movies now known simply as "pre-code" - because they were made prior to the rigid application of Hollywood's puritanical production code in 1934. These escapist entertainments were united by loose morality, sustained titillation and a fascination with all things insalubrious." The Wall Street Journal 11/28/12
