The Monkey's Pawing

When King Kong makes Fay's garment get ripped
Hays is strongly alarmed by the script.
Let the censor condemn
Such a sensual femme  
Are we wrong to be charmed now she's stripped?

David Cairns

Fay Wray in the grip of King Kong (Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack; 1933). Will Hays was the namesake of the Hays Code for censorship of American films.

Fay was every young man's fantasy when she was monkeying around!

If you don't get FILMFAX, I'll save a few issues for you. Have been giving them away for years, but wonderful archival stuff!
