Film peaked eariler, no?

By this measure, film was never more powerful (in the US) than the 30s to the 50s, the prime years of the Hayes Production Code. That censorship regime didn't start crumbling until the late 50s--when television was on the rise.

Yes, good point, and all I can say is that I fairly arbitrarily chose the frame of "moral panics that happened during my own lifetime". But I think you're right.
