Those content ratings again

One of the movies shown for George Brent's birthday yesterday was They Call It Sin. The plot involves Loretta Young being in love with a man who loves her too, except that he's engaged to someone else (and eventually marries that someone); meanwhile, her boss is doing what nowadays would be called sexual harassment. As for Brent, he's the third man, who has an unrequited love for Young. There's all sorts of Prohibition-era drinking, and a character falling to his death.

The movie got a TV-G rating from TCM. And the Bowery Boys get a TV-14 rating. You can't make this stuff up.
