My old drama teacher made a great point about *Old Hollywood*: “They worked within a censorship code. They could not be overt about sex, infidelity or homosexuality. They had to be subtle. But they still dealt with those themes. And, arguably, the subtlety was better than the annoying ‘in-your-face’ gratuitous stuff films give us now.”

I don’t necessarily agree, of course. 

But I understand what he was saying.
