The X rating, intended to denote films not suitable for anyone under the age of 17, went from being attached to Academy Award contenders to filling video store spaces located behind saloon doors.
But the MPAA never forced a film studio to submit to its decision. It could release a film with no rating at all.
Immediately after the introduction of the new MPAA system, the advisory board got its first bona fide sample of an X-rated submission: Though it was quickly going to become taboo, there was a time when an X rating for a mainstream film was a badge of honor and an effective marketing tool that signaled a film was being made for discerning moviegoers—not just viewers looking for titillation.
The X rating was not an impediment to critical or commercial acclaim.
A rating of X in was no big deal. By the mids, it signaled to audiences that they were about to watch an anatomy lesson. In short order, the X rating became synonymous with pornography and grew into a scarlet letter for films.
No reputable theaters would book such movies, and few newspapers would take ads for them. These specialists focus mostly on the 16mm and 35mm films that were produced prior to the advent of VHS.
The studio lost the suit, but it signaled the end of the war. It dropped the X in favor of NC, which it hoped would distance films with artistic merit from pornographic material.
And this time, pornography industry couldn't co-opt it: Learning from its past mistake, the MPAA trademarked the designation. While Netflix likes to keep the details of Stranger Things a mystery, David Harbour, who plays Detective Hopper, likes to have fun with his fans. A post shared by David Harbour dkharbour on Nov 10, at 7: Harbour did share that he has wrapped filming on season 3 of Stranger Things —and that we can kiss his mustache goodbye.
The mysterious post raises a number of questions. In the photo, Harbour rocks a hat that supports a local Hawkins business.
