Robert C. Ruark
You undoubtedly remember Hollywood's sexsational early years and perhaps you've been struck, a time or two, by the contrast between them and the film capital's present-day morality. Maybe you've blamed all the censorship and prudery on Will Hays or the Legion of Decency, or just accepted the talk about the industry having "come of age." This is the little known story of the man actually responsible for both the sinful cinema of that twenties and the holy Hollywood that followed.

James H. Lavely
Barrelhouse and whorehouse -- the two were inseparable in Storyville. Formally established in 1897 and at its hell-raising peak in 1899, the thirty-eight block red-light district in New Orleans' French Quarter acquired world fame and a sort of vicious glamour as the only vice settlement in the United States created by specific law. Storyville was shut tight in 1917 by a wartime order from Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels. During its short life Storyville produced, by conservative estimate, more than 4,000 "career prostitutes"; it also produced an exciting new kind of musical expression called jazz.

A poor man called Giulio once made his living by providing food and drink for travellers in the Mugnone Valley. His family consisted of a cat, a handsome wife, a small baby and a ravishingly beautiful daughter named Niccolosa.

In the year A.D. 400, the Emperor Yuan held his throne by the Great Wall of China, and the land was green with rain, readying itself toward the harvest, at peace, the people in his dominion neither too happy nor too sad.

The two old maids lived their lonely lives together until, rather unexpectedly, a stranger arrived on the scene and whisked one of them away in matrimony. After the honeymoon, the new bride visited her unmarried friend and painted an ecstatic picture of married life.

You've invited three or four couples up to your apartment for the evening. Not everyone knows everyone else and conversation begins lagging. You mix a round of drinks and suggest a game. Later in the evening, with guests more relaxed, you may play charades or strip quiz, but what you need right now is something simple that will get everyone talking and enjoying themselves.

There was a time when a girl could count on an enthusiastic audience by simply peeling down to her birthday suit. Not so today. The modern male is a jaded animal and the show lounge beauties have found it takes a clever idea, device, or gimmick to keep the customers coming back for more.
