Summary

  • "The mass appeal of movies, including their portrayals of sex and violence, have made them a target of censors since the early days. In the 1930s, Hollywood studios enforces the Production Code, a set of guidelines for movie content, to answer growing charges of immorality. The Code lasted 20 years and still influences moviemaking today. As feature films continue to cause controversy, the question remains: do movies reflect--or cause--social behavior?"--Packaging.
