An Early Queer Cruiseline?

Yes, way back in 1928 you could join a "jolly band of Pleasure Pirates" for a tropical cruise. Pardon me if this doesn't sound (and look) just a tad "of the other."

I thought this was all a touch queer even BEFORE I read the line about the "shouts of gay buccaneers."

"My goodness Captain Blood, can't you control your seamen?"

How did that one make it past the Hayes office... you know there was some tittering on the set that day....

I don't believe that Hayes had much power in 1928. The New Yorker magazines have so far made mention of his Hollywood shenanigans, but there is as yet no "code."
