That's funny ... I had exactly the same thought last night, Smitty1931.

 

According to Wikipedia:

 

"An amendment to the Code, adopted on June 13, 1934, established the Production Code Administration (PCA) and required all films released on or after July 1, 1934, to obtain a certificate of approval before being released. The PCA had two offices, one in Hollywood and the other in New York City. The first film to receive an MPPDA seal of approval was The World Moves On."

As for the other 78 films between The World Moves On and Cleopatra ... ?

 

Turns out somebody's actually set up a website to compile a list of ALL films with MPPA certificate numbers ... (talk about your labor of love !) ...

 

Certificate #2 went to Handy Andy ...

 

#3 went to Baby Take a Bow ....
