    The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942) on Turner Classics, and there is a scene toward the end where one of the women characters appears in a skin-tight ballgown of very thin material.

    Braless, of course. Not only were her nipples fully engorged, but you could even see the rim of the aerolas.

    You wouldn't think much of that in a modern movie, but it must have been almost shocking in a film of the early '40s to be that obvious. Seriously, it was enough that I even sat there with a surprised "whoa!"

    I wonder how those particular scenes made it through the censors of the day?
