Long Description:

Letters from Hays late March, 1934 to Warners and Zukor warning that It Ain't No Sin, Madame Dubarry and Doctor Monica probably cannot be made within the Code. On Dubarry: "Mr. Wallis of the studio is apparently disagreeing with most of these recommendations and the discussions reached the point where it was made a subject matter of earnest consideration at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the California Association and finally word from that Committee to this office that the whole matter should be made a subject of consideration by the Board here. "The whole matter is acute. We have read the script here and it is literally full of the objectionable material mentioned to the studio in letters which have gone from the California office."
