RARA-AVIS: Dame in the Kimono and such...

Wed, 29 Jul 1998 16:47:56 -0700 (PDT) Dame in the Kimono is a damn good text on the Hays Act and the power it
had. I only read parts of it for a paper I had to write but it did have
some good stuff in it.

It is interesting that it took so long for Postman to get made. I guess
you can really see the power of the Hays office in that last scene where
Garfield is repenting and finding God and such... I haven't read the book
(Cain right?) but I kinda doubt that part is in the book.

I know for sure that all the Noirs were micromanaged like crazy, that
white dress thing was pretty standard for the time.

Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean,
who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He must be the best man
in his world and a good enough man for any world.
