I, too, am ready for Pat, Raven and Dude and, even, the DL to return - and, of course, the lovely and impressive Hu Shee. But I am really enjoying Burma; she's a heck of an addition to the crew. Poor April, honestly, she doesn't belong on the field with Raven, Burma, the DL, etc. Lizzie, as always, is spot on Re the censors and the comic strips having the most maneuvering room. That said, everyone once in awhile, something surprising got slipped into the movies. I watched 1937's "Ever Since Eve" a month or so ago (posted about it here: #28564) and it has, remember this is a code-era movie, a surprising amount of gay, lesbian and gender-bending characters right out in the open, making not too-subtle references ("motorcycle girls of the Everglades") and cross dressing, etc., but of course, never directly saying what it is about. But it ain't hidden. Also, in this case, it wasn't even central to the plot. It was almost as if someone at Warner Bros. wanted to see what he/she could get away with, which in this case, was a surprisingly large amount of stuff. Yet, as Lizzie noted, it's the comic strips where it really happens. If somebody new to all this wanted a better view of the '30s and '40s culture than the movies made under the code, I'd recommend, pre-code movies, comic strips and popular selling fiction books. So much is there. Sometimes it's right there and sometimes it's just below the surface, but you quickly pick up the way to read and watch this stuff.
