Hooray! Someone - who obviously wishes to remain anonymous - has emailed me a reply to my question. Good job, as I wasn't going to post anything else until I got one. Thank you, that lovely person...

"The answer is probably a result of the Hays Code of Censorship in 1934, following which there were strict regulations about showing sex on screen. The woman always had to keep one foot on the floor if she was shown on a bed, so presumably this was the closest they could show someone being swept off their feet???"
