Production Code

Although G-Man pictures comply with all the tenets of the Code, their excessive violence and brutality have been causing trouble. An addition is therefore made to the Code: "Crime stories are not acceptable when they portray the activities of American gangsters armed and in violent conflict with the law or law-enforcing officers." In addition, their release will be staggered, because "the quantitative element is a serious factor." Also sent to each member of the Board
