Access 40 years of self-regulation and censorship in the film industry via detailed case files for nearly 20,000 film projects that were submitted to the Production Code staff. The collection also includes several hundred files for films reviewed by the Studio Relations Committee between 1927 and 1929, and a small number of files for films released after 1968. The selection includes films from every studio and genre, as well as examples of important foreign productions and independently made films. The Production Code Administration files document the self-regulation process from the first submission of a script, play, or literary property to the final approval of the finished film. The core of the files is the correspondence between the studios or producers and the staffs of the PCA and the MPAA. However, the files are also filled with letters to and from theater owners, censor boards, religious organizations, government entities, and other special interest groups that were concerned with the content of films.
