Oscars: Hayes / Breen Censorship files

"Cabinet X"

These censorship files represent one of the Library's most heavily used collections.
Every film made between 1930 and 1968 need to go through the rigorous moral obstacle course that was required by the Motion Picture Production Code.
Enacted by the Hayes Office (after founder, censor and Prebestian elder William H Hayes), later known as the Breen Office (after first administrator Joseph Breen) the Code identified and enforced what was allowed upon the hallowed silver screen.
