Those were because of the times. Governments from around the world banned some of the best movies for years because certain things. Sometimes change is needed and runs it course until new laws are made. The movie industry makes movies to make money. Sometimes this irks others. War, Spy and others make them look bad. Remember the guy from Iran who wrote a book and they a death bounty on his head. One just recently was stabbed half to death on stage. Hopefully people can change their differences and understandings.

Prior to the code things were pretty loose. After the code some films had to have scenes reshot because a dress was too see through, the couple kissed too long, etc.

Come one come all to the MeTv Friday Night Movie Quiz.
Where everyone can take a guess or make comments to other quizzers.
There will be extra bonus movies for just coming by. Including entertainment for all. Feel free to ask questions, copy movie links and just plain join in the fun via communication. The MQ will be up until the movie is guessed and an hour to look over and pick out what you wish. Have fun doing so. There are no wrong answers but the first one to guess the correct movie gets their names put up for getting it correctly. See you @ https://www.metv.com/quiz/can-you-fill-in-the-missing-character-names-for-these-gunsmoke-episode-titles
9 P.M. Sharp (Friday) CT. Stop by .
Good luck and enjoy and check out the early Bird vids for quizzers

Jesuit priests.

I really never understood many things in the church. Like Sainthood and such. I know they have to be deemed by The Church to become one. Things that bothered and I assume others. Like St. Joan of Arc. Wasn't she executed by the Church or for the Church. Yet 500 years later made her a Saint. Why wouldn't they know she was a Saint in the first place? Didn't God tell them or they just go on whatever their thought process was? Seems to me if not a pipeline to any God what would one know? I know that some of the times of Popes in the past were not the best in History. One could tell the truth and be sent for trial or like
Galileo sent to home confinement. No one told the Church that Earth is not the center of the Universe nor our own solar system. We know this. Or even the fact there were other planets and stars by the trillions. Whom told whom about what was rather then speculation at best back then? Just confusion as to the many religions on our planet. Maybe faith has what is needed in one owns mind. Things to ponder for sure. I am going to go back and finish that movie since I was hunting at the time for others. Someone had posted a list of IMDb on the Canadian movies. I have yet to gone through them all. When I got to Black Robe it seemed to be a good one. That was maybe 10% down the listings. I will be DL it for sure. Thanks for your input.

It does seem some religions feel they are the end all. I find it interesting that Popesused to be allowed to marry but the Church was worried about the money going to the wives.

Please all I need is more ammo LOL. Mullah can be the end all that's for sure. The things in religions against women just has to end. This is the 21st century. Yet there are some that will put women behind bars if they do not cover their faces accordingly. Or go to a school of learning other then about THAT religion. I still remember the Pakistani who was beat half to death over things like that. I believe she moved to England. They've also had their rows vs each other. Oh wait ones are Protestants and others Catholics and what bloody battles they've had through the ages. I just don't get all of this. I was brought up to know the differences between right and wrong by my parents. I never knew racism until I was like a teen. Then an eye opener.

The howling man always creeped me out
texasluva tinkparker 8 days ago
Yep he let the Devil out to do his devilish deeds against the rest of Humanity. Not good.

While I chose 'The Hitchhiker', I'm surprised that 'To Serve Man' isn't on this list for the ending alone.

Yes the ending was quite shocking. They were fattening him up for their H Bone Steaks. Always read that book and if it's a cookbook for a menu, wise up.

What defines creepy? One of The best TZ and the creepiest, in terms of reevaluating what we perceive our realities to be is , “In search of an exit”
texasluva mitchvman 8 days ago
Five Characters in Search of an Exit was really good. One of my favorites.

I chose "It's a Good Life" but my all time creepiest is "Queen of the Nile".
RobertK 23 days ago
I chose "Nightmare at 20,000 feet". That creepy ape thing with the big lips scared the "Shatner" out of me when I was a kid! 😬😕😨
cperrynaples 24 days ago
None of these answers are correct! The right answer is Queen Of The Nile! As far as Twenty Two goes, it claims the prize for WORST episode IMHO!

All episodes selected by others are in the Eye Of The Beholder. They are all rated at IMDb which is an overall rating of those voting. Yours though not bad is probably mid-pack but a favorite for you. It's all just what floats ones boat. I have 10-15 favorites and hard to select which one is best since they are all great. Below you will find them all with ratings of each. BTW beware, The Monsters are Due on MeTV Street.

I voted for "Living Doll" but after careful consideration would like to change my vote to "The Hitch-Hiker". The best episodes are the ones with a little twist at the end that maybe you didn't see coming. Very tragic end with Inger Steven's suicide in the early 70's. Avery talented actress who had so much more to give.

100% Similar. Picked "The Living Doll" but my favorite is "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet".
