: << I just realized that many of the shows had adultery type scenes especially Mary playing the adulteress in some of the Captain O'Benny scenes. In the forties the censors frowned upon adultery as a topic.

===================
Interesting point, although in most of the Captain O'Benny scenes, the husband had usually just been killed (or presumed killed). In doing "Intermezzo", Jack plays a married violinist who is in love with his accompanist, which can classify as this as well.
