A thread dedicated to "golden age" film stills,
that (unlike the infamous Carmen Miranda Cesar Romero photo)
1. Were submitted for approval to the MPPDA's
Advertising Advisory Council/Advertising Code Administration
2. And rejected/censored.

The rejected still below depicts
Andy Devine, James Dunn, and "unidentified"
in a scene from Murder on the Mississippi,
which, upon its release, was titled Mysterious Crossing (1936).

Yeah, that's not really a very good angle of Joan Blondell's face, and the lighting isn't very flattering. They were right to reject that one on aesthetic grounds. Great pose and cute costume, though!
