A half-century of censorship in American cinema. From 1930 to 1934, films known as “pre-code” openly addressed topics such as adultery, homosexuality, drugs and organized crime, but the implementation of the Hays code would change everything. Directors such as Billy Wilder, Ernst Lubitsch, Frank Capra and Alfred Hitchcock rivalled each other for their ingenuity in getting around this censorship: their films were replete with innuendos, which allowed artists to express themselves despite the rigidity of the Hays code.
