Storyline

From the moment Thomas Edison shocked the public with May Irwin's unabashed kiss, the movie industry has become a battlefield for audiences who can't get enough of a good thing - and critics who believe some things are better left behind closed doors. SEX, CENSORSHIP AND THE SILVER SCREEN, a six-part documentary written and directed by Frank Martin traces the evolution of sexuality in America film, from the silent-film vamp Theda Bara to Elizabeth Taylor to the temptresses of ''Showgirls.'' Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith, Marisa Tomei and Daryl Hannah recreate the voices of Hollywood legends to chronicle the continuing clash between screen sexuality and censorship. Raquel Welch is the host. Written by Anonymous

Film buffs will love this.
1 June 2002 | by (Dallas, Tx) – See all my reviews

I first saw this when I was 13. Film was part of my life just as it is now. But I didn't even know I was a film buff then. There were a number of things that got me interested in film, this documentary was one of them. For six hours this documentary goes through the History of sex in film since the beginning of film till 1996. I learned so much from this film. I feel that if any film buff wants to watch any good documentaries on film that will teach them a lot, they should watch this and Martin Scorsese's Personal Journey Through American Movies. Avoid AFI's "Documentary" on the 100 best American movies. Some of the reasons why this documentary is good are: it deals with censorship, studios, stars, film makers, it goes behind the scenes and even talks about certain films. Raquel Welch hosted this but I don't see that information anywhere on imbd and I don't see any movie connections anywhere on this page. Finally I want to know when this will be out on dvd, if ever.
