DISASTROUS DOUBLE FEATURE: “Dr. X” (1932) / “Return of Dr. X” (1939)

In 1932, movies weren’t exactly, shall we say, under as many censorship rules as they are today.  There wasn’t a rating system, the Hayes Code wasn’t in effect yet, and so long as the flick didn’t show anything that you … Continue reading
