- Meetings - Re Don'ts
- Additional text in Transcription. EDITORIAL COMMENT This is the first major meeting discussing the revision of the Don'ts into what became the Production Code.
Re redrafting of formula to Code - Hays recites the history of the crises in 1924 and 1927, the problem of "the injection of vulgarities into pictures." "During the past two or three years we have patiently and on the whole successfully urged the censors and the public to permit you to exercise a greater freedom in the selection of your story material. Quite consciously during that time there has been a broadening of themes to the advantage of box-office and artistic values."
