Watch Thou Shalt Not: Sex, Sin and Censorship in Pre-Code Hollywood - Alternative Versions.
TCM aired this documentary on the pre-code era of Hollywood films
during the early '30s: THOU SHALT NOT: SEX, SIN AND CENSORSHIP IN
PRE-CODE Hollywood, and it lives up to its title with a rundown of
various films that pushed the envelope before the Hays Office came into
existence and censorship in films began with some rigid codes about
what could and could not be shown.
As someone else pointed out, a lot of films went unmentioned and could
have been included with reference to racy dialog that got past the
censors, even in innocuous Laurel & Hardy comedies. Of the films
mentioned, we get fleeting looks at NIGHT NURSE, THE Divorcée, THE
PUBLIC ENEMY, and other such films that were considered risqué at the
time but got past the censors. There's barely a mention of Mae West and
her many one-liners, so there's a lot of material that isn't covered in
the documentary's brief running time.
Comments from people like Camille Paglia, Rudy Behlmer, Leonard Maltin
and others is incisive and to the point. Most amusing is the fact that
twin beds always had to be shown in the budoir and there were rules
about bedroom etiquette that included something about a man's foot had
to be shown on the floor. Curious do's and don'ts ruled the day as soon
as censorship boards were taken seriously.
Covers quite a bit of ground but leaves out a lot of other information
which would have made for a more complete documentary.
