In 1951, Preminger directed the Broadway hit ''Theatre/TheMoonIsBlue'', and announced plans to independently produce a film version. ''The Moon is Blue'' dealt with, for its time, risque sexual matters. The film would not qualify for [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Production Code]] approval (despite attempts to settle differences with Joseph Breen), so Preminger released it without code approval. ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenArm'' raised eyebrows not only for its candid treatment of drug use, which also failed to pass the Code, but for its spotlight-stealing credit, "A Film by Otto Preminger." Then there's ''Film/AnatomyOfAMurder'', which also circumvented the code by discussing rape and using other phrases related to it in the film. ''Film/AdviseAndConsent'' was the first Hollywood film to show a gay bar, while ''The Cardinal'' was one of the most critical films about the Catholic Church. These movies played a huge role in loosening censorship and paving the way for other directors to start testing and challenging the Code. A liberal, Preminger along with Creator/KirkDouglas played a role in ending UsefulNotes/TheHollywoodBlacklist, by crediting Dalton Trumbo for his work as a screenwriter. Preminger put out a ad in the major newspaper a year before the release of ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'', which preceded his film ''Film/{{Exodus}}'' in the release calendar. Both movies credit Trumbo in their titles.
