Accuracy[edit]

"Should we plan to release this confidential information at a later date?" The MPAA stands for `Major Players All Across' - A computer subculture phenomenon. [leet] The MPAU actually handles all information that the MPAA handles here. -- this entire article should read MPAU (Motion Picture Association United) {not on Wikipedia (tm) yet./?} where MPAA was mistaken somewhere during Betamax/Maxi~Reil convention, for MPAU. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.117.16.45 (talk) 13:23, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Blacklisting???[edit]

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see a single word on blacklisting. Actually, I didn't see any criticism of this organization anywhere. I guess it was a positive thing to keep freedom of speech out of Hollywood. Sammy D III (talk) 19:31, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

The article is favorable to the MPAA—possibly written by someone affiliated to the organization—but I don't think there is any ulterior motives at work here in terms of actively keeping the material out. I think the blacklisting is an important part of Hollywood history and would certainly support inclusion of the MPAA's role. Betty Logan (talk) 19:49, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
I didn’t mean cover-up, just bias. Hollywood blacklist only has a passing reference, too. Still, it surprises me, lots of people have been here, I didn’t see that it had ever come up.
If I could, maybe I would. At least it’s been mentioned now, maybe someone will notice. Thank you for your time (and very fast reply). Sammy D III (talk) 23:54, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Change[edit]

I made a change in the Johnson period section regarding the production code. I don't know how to add sources formally into the article in the standard format, but the following http://productioncode.dhwritings.com/multipleframes_productioncode.php will justify my change. There had been numerous changes to the code since it was written in 1930, but I refer to 1934 as the first consistent implementation of the Code (starting July 1), and to 1956 as arguably (but not definitively) the most significant of the changes during that time, thus preserving the spirit of the earlier poster's idea, while making it more consistent with the fact. (The Special Regulations on Crime in the late 1930s was a pretty significant change, so there's room for disagreement as to which was more important, but as it had been written, the existing text was incorrect and uncited.)136.181.195.29 (talk) 14:12, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

I have reinstalled the 1930 date; even your source dates the code to 1930. Even if the code only became binding in 1934 (as claimed by this article), it is factually inaccurate to say the code itself was first implemented in any year other than 1930.
