Tarzan naked swim – 1934 – Tarzan and His Mate

The scene was banned by the Hayes commission in 1934 for indecency. It was not restored to the film until the 1990’s when Turner Classics bought the film rights. Maureen O’Sullivan, aka “Jane”, (Mia Farrow’s mother) was a good swimmer but not THAT good. She had a body double who, along with Weismuller, was an Olympic swimmer in her own right.

THE SISTERS OF MERCY – Valentine

The razor bites and the shriek subsides
He arches clutching at his sides
Across the floor across the tiles
The man is dead and the razor smiles
A shiny love song a quick incision
Cut him down on television
A people come to this
Beyond the age of reason
A people fed on famine
A people on their knees and
People eat each other
A people stand in line
Waiting for another war and
Waiting for…
Cancer for my education
Watch the body hit the files
Waiting for another war and
Waiting for my valentine
