Production Code

Production Code problems with script of Tinfoil -- unacceptable because it justifies prostitution ... "It seems to us that the moral issues involved are complicated by the current economic situation. If it is to be suggested that the depression not only has stripped the nation of its wealth but has reduced its women to going on the streets as prostitutes to obtain the bare necessities of life, then our whole national life is depicted at a low point.

Long Description:

... "There would be justifiable resentment of this insinuation, particularly in view of the the rather heroic efforts being made by the relief organizations, individuals, and the government itself to take care of the needy."
