"The Moon Is Blue." Produced by Otto Preminger Films and distributed by United Artists.

Holmby Productions v. Vaughn

By October 24, 1955

After censoring “The Moon Is Blue,” the Supreme Court overturns the Kansas film censorship statute in Holmby Productions, Inc. v. Vaughn (350 US 870). Like the 1954 Superior Films decision, there is no opinion or clarity from the Court.

Through a legislative error, the Kansas board continues to censor films through 1966.
