      With a gay father, no wonder Spanky joined the He-Man Woman Haters Club. LOL

      Great piece with one teensy correction. The Hays Code (named after [former Postmaster General] Will H. Hays) ruled the Hollywood roost from the mid 1930s until the 1960s-ish.

      The MPAA’s standards are about as ludicrous as Hays but that’s another tale. I think even Psycho had to be approved by a (tamer, gentler) Hays Commission… but memory fades.

      Edward Everett Horton is remembered for his famously “fey” roles during the same time period. And, just as unremembered in many ways.
