Storyline

George Putnam narrates standing in front of a map of the U.S., using large title cards to establish each topic. He argues that moral decay is spreading in this country: pornography, smut peddlers, salacious magazines and paperback books, fetishists, corrupters of children, nudists, and homosexuals. The motive, profit - it's a $2 billion per year industry. He shows us a courtroom where a judge instructs a jury to uphold community standards: Putnam argues that the Constitution and U.S. law are on the side of decency. At the film's end, he answers the question "What can an individual do?" with six suggestions, including promoting good reading to children. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Get Off with George Putnam
26 April 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This vile pile of 1960s pollution was put out by a group calling themselves the "Citizens for Decent Literature Inc." Like other films of its type, "Perversion for Profit" sought to both frighten and titillate its audiences; today, it's either offensive or funny (depending on your mood). The film provides a generous parade of pornographic images. Narrator George Putnam (subtitled "outstanding news reporter") promises the photographs displayed will cover up offensive body parts, "for the sake of decency" - but, don't worry, he mostly means the little dark slits covering some of the models' eyes. Mr. Putnam's approach is much like that employed, presently, by "folks" like Bill O'Reilly; express shock while providing your audience with perversion, for profit.

* Perversion for Profit (1965) Charles Keating ~ George Putnam
