Another factor is changes in the ways we view issues.


Regarding The Lost Weekend, it was groundbreaking at the time for being an honest (as honest as films could be in 1945) about alcoholism. Our views have changed since then about that subject, and the ways that it can be realistically portrayed in film is dramatically different. Contrast The Lost Weekend with Leaving Las Vegas, for example.

Other examples include how sex/relationships, drug use, domestic violence, homosexuality, criminal behavior and racial issues are portrayed. To the extent those were even included in films from the 40s and 50s, it was more innuendo than a direct portrayal.
