I agree with the comments other members have made. Movies were a great way to spend time that allowed you to forget your troubles and escape the real world around you. The glitz and glamour of this scene was in direct opposition to what was happening outside the theater in the depression. Certainly only the wealthy were able to able to spend money like they show. I also feel these movies played to viewers hopes/dreams/aspirations for a better life. I knew of the "Code" but never really gave it and it's impact on movies any thought until this course. Certainly nudity was out as well as sexual innuendo. Not sure how much of the "Code" is still impacting movies today, but I don't think a lot.
I usually watch Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, West Side Story, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Holiday Inn, White Christmas, and Hello Dolly multiple times throughout the year. I really enjoy the dancing the most but the singing/songs are just as good.
