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

Amazing What Prudes We Are.
29 March 2002 | by (90001) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting documentary on sex in the movies since their inception. After viewing, it is realized what prudes we are as a society, and how we have viewed sex so unhealthily through the ages, even up until the current day. We don't love ourselves or others enough and it is evident with the dismal and unhealthy views that are portrayed as a whole by our society in all medias, including film. Unfortunately, this is a slow change, and I think that conservatives and liberals both making films tend to be guilty of taking us backward rather than forward. It is only when we love ourselves and our fellow man (and woman) that this will change as a reflection of our society. Nonetheless, this is an excellent look at sex as it has been portrayed in films since the beginning. I'm sure anyone looking for cheap thrills will find them here.
