Censored Hollywood: Sex, Sin, & Violence on Screen
Frank Miller (au). Sex & violence have been part of films right from the start. Guns were brandished in the first widely-viewed movie, The Great Train Robbery. Jean Harlow, Bette Davis, & Barbara Stanwyck are a few of the stars whose early roles, while modest by today’s standards, garnered backlash from critics & the public alike. Here is the history of Hollywood’s notorious Production Code, the film industry’s attempts at self-regulation, & the development of the present-day rating system. Examines how film censorship reflects the morals, sexuality, & politics prevalent in society during each decade of the past century, & explores how violence has replaced sex as the target of censorship today.
