Roman Scandals

Over at Bondagerotica I have a well-vidcapped review of "Roman Scandals," a weird Eddie Cantor comedy that slipped a load of nudity, bondage, slavegirls and general kinkiness into the American movie scene just prior to the descent of the infamous Hayes Code in 1934. Much of the stuff that's touted as pre-Hayes Code raunch could be aired at 8 p.m. on any weeknight and no one would even notice ... or watch -- even the Flanderses who claim to like censored stuff so much, because by modern standards it's pretty dull, for the most part, women thinking about having sex but not being seen doing it or getting naked or anything.

This movie delivers on the nakedness, to the fullest extent possible in 1933.

It even features a young Lucille Ball as a naked slavegirl. Check it out.
