Andrei Pedophilia scandals

This is an image from the movie the Godfather. In the final cut of the movie the little girl in this image gets about 20 seconds of screen time but in the original script and in the book from which it is drawn - it is her twelfth birthday and the movie director in the story takes her virginity - to the delight of her mother, who presumably sees it as career enhancing, and to the utter disgust of Don Corleone, the Godfather.

The book of course was based on real things that had actually happened, mish-mashed up of course.

For whatever reason this pedophiliac subplot disappeared from the final cut but it reflected a reality of Hollywood in the late forties and the fifties, sixties, seventies and later.

Are we to believe Hollywood directors and agents celibate or something?

Funny, one would think that the atheists would have a good answer to that.

Seems not.
