Crime Must Not Play

Our daughters shown playing at vice!
Such naughty displays aren't nice
When virtue's destroyed
The Church gets annoyed
They ought to be paying a price!

Randolph Scott and Nancy Carroll do the laundry on Hot Saturday (William A Seiter, 1932). In 1934, the Catholic organization the National Legion of Decency put pressure on the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America to more vigorously enforce the Production Code. Title by musty David Cairns.
