Was Hollywood Really That Sinful


Recommended Posts

SHOOTING STARS Drugs, Hollywood & The Movies by Harry Shapiro is an excellent book on the subject. It even sites examples of drug use in movies getting beyond the "code" in early film. It's a great book if you prefer academic views rather than sensationalism.


As for sex, I think that is more cyclical with the morality of the times. Just look at the difference in attitude on homosexuality-in the 20's it was an accepted alternative in "flapper" society, the 50's crawled into the closet (Rock Hudson to mention one oppressed), and today it's celebrated.
