Volume 8 of "Forbidden Hollywood" is a 4-disc set of 4, b&w, pre-code, Hollywood movies from the years between 1931-1934.

These 4 films were released at a time in movie history before the Hays Code had been imposed, putting serious restrictions on the subject matter allowed in American motion pictures.

Seeing these films today (80+ years later) - It's hard to believe that something as tame as what we are shown here was actually looked upon as needing to be censored.

But - I guess it all came down to a big concern about these movies "corrupting the moral fibre of the American people." (Ha! Spare me!)

Anyway - The so-called "forbidden" subject matter contained in these films concerns gangsterism, fast girls, drug addiction, alcoholism, and gambling (and not even a hint of nudity).
