Why Be Good? Sexuality and Censorship in Early Cinema Reviews

  • Jul 28, 2015

    A simple but lacking of style documentary of basically the early exploits of sexuality on screen. It's amazing what they got way with at the time & how they got around censorship so cleverly & deceptively. Focuses mainly on the 1920's & 30's mainly but is a great research tool to how it was. Much scandal & naughty behavior was often included in film & all was ok if there was a moral ending.
