Before the Hays Code, Hollywood had a whole subgenre of "social consciousness" movies, aimed at getting a message across to audiences in a punchy, direct way. "I Cover The Waterfront" (1933) is a perfect example, with Ben Lyon playing a newspaper reporter who uncovers a human smuggling ring and falls in love with the daughter of the smuggling ring's leader, played by Claudette Colbert. This hard-hitting black-and-white message movie wastes no effort, and features Colbert skinny-dipping in a risque pre-Code scene.
