3. Since this is a musical that was made after the motion picture code was enforced, how might you imagine it might have been filmed or scripted differently if it had been pre-code?

She or the stage show producer didn't need to use skin or words when her being foreign was enough to attract men. Casting was one way around the code. Foreign accents are sexy in themselves. That works for British and Italian actresses as well. And for male actors too.
