Abbott and Costello

White slave trafficking, obscene films, and a youth foundation for delinquents

Now-declassified FBI reports state: “In October of 1944 during the course of an investigation of a purported ring of obscene motion picture operators in Hollywood, information was received that the best-known customers for obscene film in Hollywood were Red Skelton, Lou Costello, George Raft and others. One informant, who, it has been shown, tends to exaggerate the facts, said that Lou Costello had the largest library of obscene film in Hollywood. The informant remarked that Costello ‘had it running out of his ears.'”

Someone doesn't understand what was considered "obscene" back then.

I agree, they had strict standards on obscenity back then. They could not even show underwear commercials in the sixties....I actually think that was more civil than the underwear commercials I see on TV these days.
