Forbidden Films: Censorship Histories of 125 Motion Pictures

Dawn B. Sova, Author Facts on File $55 (384p) ISBN 978-0-8160-4017-9
What do Anna and the King, Basic Instinct and La Dolce Vita have in common? All have faced censorship for political, religious, sexual or social reasons. In the vein of 100 Banned Books (and from the same imprint) comes Forbidden Films: Censorship Histories of 125 Motion Pictures. The title says it all, almost but in addition to outlining each film's troubles with decency boards, however formal or informal, Dawn B. Sova offers plot summaries, production details and suggestions for further reading. And since each film entry can be digested in under five minutes, it's both a handy basic reference and a good coffee break read. (Nov.)
