Inhaltsangabe: This provocative book chronicles the history of Hollywood's Production Code and the modern Rating System. Frank Miller shows how film censorship reflects the morals, sexuality, and politics of each decade, and explores why violence has replaced sex as the target of censorship.
From Library Journal:
From ancient times, when crowds forced Euripides to rewrite his original version of Hippolytus, censorship in some form has been a force to contend with in the arts. Miller, however, has done a great deal of research on the subject and has come to the conclusion that movies are a particularly popular target, largely because of their capacity to reach massive numbers of people in comparison with many other art forms. Miller traces the impact of censorship from the days of The Birth of a Nation and other classics to present-day fare like Basic Instinct. He includes specific analyses of scene and dialog cuts, explanations of industry codes and ratings, descriptions of positions taken by church and social activist groups, and an insightful philosophy on censorship in general. An intelligent-and spicy-study for those interested in the sociology and politics of art. For public and academic libraries.
