I guess things and people were just more innocent back then. I saw a movie from the mid 1930s on Turner Classic Movies one night and there was a scene where a mother is bathing her little boy, who looked to be about five years old, in a metal tub and when she lifts him out to dry him off they make no attempt to hide his bare behind. Something like that is strange to see in old movies like the one I saw or in that THE LITTLE RASCALS movie when we have been raised that it is not acceptable now.

    That must be the nudity my friend is talking about. Technically, it is not nudity but I will pay up on my bet because I would never have thought they would have showed even the bare butt like that of ... more

        My entire family used to visit nudist camps when I was a child, so I am a person who was not raised to believe that nudity is unacceptable.

            Ogling is not acceptable to me. That isn't what I meant. Have a nice day.

      Do you remember those Coppertone sun-tan lotion ads that featured a dog pulling at a girls pants and exposing her untanned buttocks? To the best of my knowledge that wasn't even considered... more

          In 1960, Disney released the movie "Pollyanna", where the opening sequence is a 12-year-old boy skinny-dipping. In the film, they show him nude from the back. However, when they were shooting the... more

        I remember those ads, and they weren't considered controversial back then. Somewhere along the line they disappeared, but whether it was just time for a new ad or because it was decided at a later... more

          The Coppertone girl ad was just a drawn picture caricature of a little girl. Some people thought that was cute. That is not the same as showing a real live girl getting her pants pulled down. Did the ... more
