movies that pushed the boundaries. movies that showed more skin. movies that used blunt language and left nothing to doubt. in short, SEX!

listed here are a bunch of hollywood movies before the hays code forced them to tone down everything.

of course, those movies are nothing compared to today's where anything goes.

still, there are a few delights in these collections and you can catch a glimpse of stars in the making like bette davis, humphrey bogart, james cagney, joan blondell, clark cable and many others.
