Identify which of the 12 Production Code prohibitions are violated using one of your favorite films. Describe the scene(s) that violate the code.
The Production Code: A Summary
The 1930 Production Code elaborated twelve areas of concern:
1. Crimes: Included were subsections on the methods used by criminals to commit murder, arson, and robbery (prohibiting anything that could be used as instructions for fear of copycats in the audience); drug trafficking; and alcohol production, distri- bution, and consumption (illegal under the Volstead Act).
2. Sex: Included were subsections on adultery (never justified), scenes of passion (with a specific prohibition on “excessive and lustful kissing”), seduction or rape (seen as more or less the same thing—a specific sub-subsection prohibits use of such scenes in comedy films), sex perversion (not defined or specified), white slavery, miscegenation, venereal dis- ease, scenes of actual childbirth and children’s sex organs (the on-screen depiction of which was strictly prohibited).
3. Vulgarity: Good taste must prevail.
4. Obscenity: Not defined and something of a catch-all.
5. Profanity: Rough language (expletives, blas- phemy) was strictly censored. The list of forbidden words included: “alley cat” (applied to a woman), “cripes,” “fanny,” “whore,” “damn,” “pansy,” and “nuts” (except when meaning “crazy”).
6. Costume: “Complete nudity” was strictly for- bidden. Diaphanous, overly revealing clothing could not be worn. Scenes showing characters getting undressed “should be avoided.”
7. Dances: No sexually suggestive movement or gesture was allowed.
8. Religion: All faiths and denominations must be respected. “Ministers of religion. . .should not be used as comic characters or villains.”
9. Locations: “The treatment of bedrooms must be governed by good taste and delicacy.”
10. National feelings: Reverence for the flag and country; respect for other nations and nationalities.
11. Titles: “Salacious, indecent, or obscene titles shall not be used.”
12. Repellent subjects: Prohibitions against depic- tions of executions, third-degree methods (used by police), brutality, “branding of people or animals,” “cruelty to children or animals,” white slavery, and surgical operations.
