There is a controversy concerning the film adaptation of The Ruined Lady, which allegedly was blocked by Hays when proposed by one studio, but allowed to go ahead when proposed by another. The interesting aspects of the case revolve around the perceived role of Hays as an official censor, and his reply to this charge. Note also Hays' objection to Song of Dragon which, while not censorable, may prove offensive to the government.
