Even though the 1933 KING KONG was made after the Hays code was put into effect (1930), the code was basically unenforced until years later. That’s why we can see the beautiful FAY WRAY either (very briefly) topless or being completely bra-less for the majority of the film. Both these things would be unthinkable shortly after and remain in effect for over another 30 years.
