New Screen Rant is live: forbidden messages vs. censorship (#SFWApro)

“forbidden” in this context, ranging from violence to sex to “Nazi Germany is the enemy” to “American women have sex before marriage.” To find more, just click.

Below we have an image from Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) which has a reference to Holmes’ using cocaine.

And Confessions of a Nazi Spy (1939) which broke through the Production Code rules against anti-German messages.

All rights to both images remain with current holders.
