#158: The Moon is Blue and the Crumbling of the Production Code
Samantha and Kristen relax after TCMFF with a look at a small picture that packed a big punch for Hollywood. The 1953 romantic comedy The Moon is Blue is progressive in its look at gender and sex. It also thumbed its nose at the Motion Picture Production Code. So then why is not currently available on home video?
Kristen’s written a book for TCM and Running Press called But Have You Read the Book? all about film adaptations! You can buy it wherever you buy books.
