Movie Censorship in New York: an Early Cancel Culture?  In the days before the Motion Picture Association developed a film rating system, movie producers and distributors had to apply for a permit with New York’s Division of Motion Picture to show their film in the state. The New York State Archives preserves the largest collection of film scripts from 1921-1965 in the world. Learn more about the contribution these scripts add to the history of censorship in New York and trace the shifting of American attitudes toward sex, religion and morality.
