I remember the "Advocate" movie ratings clearly. Has anyone ever seen "The Moon is Blue?" That was on there as "condemned" forever! I always wondered what one was supposed to do with films in the category "morally objectionable in part." Could you go and then determine that the objectionable part was coming up and close your eyes?
If I recall correctly, The Legion of Decency, with the good Monsignor as commander-in-chief, was composed of Rosary Society ladies who were responsible for checking out the local stationary stores for dirty magazines on display. Said stationary stores were then condemned from the pulpit on Sunday.
