“These are the facts of pre-Code Hollywood. The story behind it is monumental, because it deals with struggle for power. The stakes were high: the billion-dollar market for America's sixth-largest industry. The market was mostly Protestant. The industry was mostly Jewish-run. Yet a Midwest Catholic minority gained control. This is the story of *Forbidden Hollywood.*”
Mark A. Vieira, Forbidden Hollywood: The Pre-Code Era (1930-1934): When Sin Ruled the Movies
