?The Decline and Fall of the Hays Code

 

In the 1950s, the Code became steadily less effective. During that decade, the movie industry was losing audience to television; movies had to offer something that audiences couldn?t see on the small screen. Moreover, foreign films dealing more explicitly with sex were freely exhibited at art theaters without the PCA?s seal of approval. In 1952, the Supreme Court invalidated government censorship of movies, thus removing one of the main reasons for the establishment and mainte-nance of the Code. In 1953, United Artists released Otto Preminger?s

 

The Moon Is Blue without the PCA?s seal; the film did well at the box office, which shattered the belief that a major production without the seal was doomed. Breen retired in 1954; the new PCA director, a long-time staffer named Geoffrey Shurlock, was less censorious and more flexible than his predecessor. The Code was revamped and liberalized in 1956 and again in 1966, by which time an increasing number of pictures produced by major studios were being released without the PCA?s seal of approval.?

Those "nuts' from the right-wing of the Republican party, if they won the election, just might cut unnecessary government programs and reduce taxes which will put more of your income in your pocket.

They might secure the borders and deport as many illegal immigrants as is possible. Ilegal immigrants that come here and suck up the benefits of this country. Benefits that were created by hard-working Americans. Hard working Americans that the present and the previous administration had so little regard for.
