|Plot||Successful architect Don Gresham (William Holden) engages a young actress, Patty O'Neill (Maggie McNamara), in conversation on top of the Empire State Building, and she accepts his invitation to dinner. Dropping in at his apartment on the way, they decide to dine there as Patty announces herself an excellent cook. Don slips out to buy food, and Patty is briefly visited by his ex-fiancée, Cynthia Slater (Dawn Addams), and not too briefly, by Cynthia's father David (David Niven), a middle-aged, practiced charmer who, on her invitation, stays to dinner. A slight accident at the table occasions Patty to change her dress for Don's bathrobe. While Don is away placating the jealous Cynthia, David loses no time in offering Patty a proposal of marriage and a six hundred dollar gift. She accepts the latter and is surprised by Don in a grateful kiss to David. Don is still enraged with Patty when her father arrives, and, outraged to discover his daughter in a bachelor's apartment, knocks him senseless.... see The Moon Is Blue on IMDb|

|It begins and ends on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, a fitting site for this 1953 movie that erupted into a towering controversy. The charm of the film's William Holden/David Niven/Maggie McNamara triangle notwithstanding, Hollywood's Production Code refused to approve The Moon Is Blue because of an "unacceptably light attitude toward seduction." Among the movie's offending words: "virgin" and "pregnant." But producer/director Otto Preminger, who had triumphantly staged The Moon Is Blue on Broadway and had seen it become a smash hit on a national stage tour, refused to change a scene or a word. In an unprecedented move, he released the film without the Code's seal. Audiences backed Preminger at the box office - and a new era of moviemaking independence dawned.|
