Summary

Since the earliest days of the movie industry, mainstream films have been banned for their sexual, religious, social, & political content. The history of film censorship began when politicians created state & municipal censorship bureaus, which led to the creation of the National Board of Censorship. Forbidden Films traces the efforts to censor 125 major films, ranging from the silent Birth of a Nation to the classic Gone With the Wind. This fascinating reference details the continued efforts to regulate the industry, providing a summary of each banned work--including production details, its censorship history, & suggestions for further reading on the film. Entries cover: * Early censorship efforts to regulate the industry, such as the Hays Code in 1922 * The Motion Picture Production Code in 1930 & the ''pre-code'' era * The emergence of the Catholic Legion of Decency, which wielded extensive power for nearly 40 years * The reasoning behind different types of film censorship--including racism & anti-Semitism, sexual ''indecency,'' & the fear of Communism * Classic & contemporary films that have faced censorship, such as Rebel Without a Cause, Citizen Kane, & L.A. Confidential.
