The Truth? This Film is Indecent!


Can you believe how dreadfully perverted this film is? They take delight in showing the magazines! They must have had a riot after the film was over, fighting over all the nudie magazines! I can see Putnam screaming, "I WANT THE HOMO SADO-MASTA STUFF!!" The thing is, the film is purient in itself! The camera lingers over the pictures, drooling like a dog in heat. The most indecent thing about the movie is how terribly backward it is, and hateful over "HO-MO-SEX-YOU-ALLS, and LESS-BEE-ANNS!" It's a much better world now that we can see this is hate, pure and simple.

I kind of laughed at how many porn mags they had in the name of "research". Suuuure. That was Outstanding Reporter George Putnam's personal collection.

reply

Yes, I had to imagine they either confiscated them in raids on places where they were printed, from the mail, or went out and spent the entire budget at the newsstand or mail ordering them all! I wonder who they hired to black tape all the naughty, naughty bits. Probably had to stop every once in a while to release long pent-up urges, poor guys.

reply

Yeah, they apply red tape and black tape over certain objectional areas, but occasionally they show the nipples on some of the female models without taping them, which is stupid in and of itself. Sometimes I am glad I was not born before 1971.

Films are not reality. Reality is not film. Film is only an approximation of reality.

yah, and notice how some mags looked "well thumbed" or otherwise somewhat worn for use .....maybe they borrowed someones personal stash !

This was intended as a warning to parents in particular and adults in general. It's an attempt to inform them about the things kids may encounter out in the world. People want to make light of it because the climate we currently live in is 'anything goes' but that's the attitude that gets them in trouble.

Is it a much better world? Open your eyes. Lives are being ruined all around you but you can't see it. People keep insisting things are better because it's easier than facing reality. Much luck to you in your delusion.

Tears in my eyes. I DVR'ed this offering from TCM last night and I have not laughed so much in quite a while. Nothing like an effort that takes itself so seriously and is so unintentionally loony. Much like Reefer Madness. Camp for days.

As Sproketer pointed out, the display of horrid pictures goes on forever. C'mon, a sample of three or four would have sufficed. It complains about the cost of a billion dollars to rectify the moral erosion due to such filth, but does not give credit to the tax intake from such popular publications. And leather dealers

"Sex mad magazines are creating criminals faster than we can build jails to house them."

What the hell kind of perversion do you think happens there, George?

"Do you want your children stimulated and driven into an early unstable marriage...?"

Well, George, I had to be with my love for 33 year before I got to legally wed him. The only unstable marriage I would have had would have been if I'd tried to do an "accepted" one with a woman.

"Do you want your daughter lured into lesbianism?" I'd rather her be lured by systers than to settle with an anal retentive judgmental creep like you, George.

I enjoyed this film immensely.If only Robert Osborne had introduced it! Can't wait for the musical! I gave it 10/10.

I slept with you and you're in love with my husband. What the hell am I supposed to do with that?
