Description: This entertaining and insightful book is the first devoted exclusively to the films that have earned a special place in motion picture history by pushing the "cinematic envelope" with their treatment of provocative subjects and themes. Obscene, Indecent, Immoral and Offensive: 100+ Years of Controversial Cinema chronicles the history of Hollywood censorship and the films that were banned, censored, and condemned by the Production Code Administration and the Legion of Decency. Stephen Tropiano offers readers insightful and accessible analysis of films that were branded "controversial" at the time of their release due to explicit language, nudity, graphic sex, violence, and their treatment of "adult" subject matter and themes. The films profiled include The Birth of a Nation, Anatomy of a Murder, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Baby Doll, Blackboard Jungle, Bonnie and Clyde, The Wild Bunch, A Clockwork Orange, Natural Born Killers, Caligula, Rosemary's Baby, Life of Brian, The Last Temptation of Christ, and The Passion of the Christ.
