In 1934, censorship arrived in Hollywood in the form of the "Production Code," a strict set of government guidelines for what filmmakers could--and, more importantly, could not--include in their movies. This collection offers six "taboo" films created before the rules were in place:

The Cheat (1931) directed by George Abbott
A compulsive gambler (Tallulah Bankhead) will do anything to pay off her debt - including turning to a wealthy businessman behind her husband's back.

Merrily We Go to Hell (1932) directed by Dorothy Arzner
An abusive alcoholic (Fredric March) reunites with a woman from his past and drives his wife (Sylvia Sidney) to drastic measures. Look for Cary Grant in a very minor role.

Hot Saturday (1932) directed by William Seitner
Scandal erupts after a young woman (Nancy Carroll) innocently spends the night with a notorious playboy (Cary Grant) and neglects to tell her fiance (Randolph Scott).

Torch Singer (1933) directed by Alexander Hall and George Somnes
After giving up her illegitimate child for adoption, a notorious nightclub singer (Claudette Colbert) attempts to find her daughter through a children's radio show. The father is played by David Manners, who also shows up in several of the Universal horror films of the early 30's. Strong support comes from Ricardo Cortez.

Murder at the Vanities (1934) directed by Mitchell Leisen
While musical revue "The Vanities" captivates an audience on its opening night, a murder investigation takes place backstage. Victor McLaglin plays the policeman trying to solve the murder, which actually isn't that interesting. What is interesting are the bizarre musical numbers in "The Vanities" including an ode to marijuana.

Search for Beauty (1934) directed by Erle Kenton
Olympic swimming champions (Buster Crabbe and Ida Lupino) are tricked into endorsing a racy magazine - and much worse. Robert Armstrong and veteran character actor James Gleason play the tricksters.
