Summary
After World War II, the wholesomeness of American movies faced a tidal wave of change-from outside, as a growing number of provocative foreign films made their way to the U.S., and from within, as car culture flowered and drive-in theaters sprang up across the country. This program documents the period, from the birth of art house cinema to the ascent of boundary-busting American actors and directors like Marlon Brando and Stanley Kubrick. Studying the shifting moral standards that Hollywood, Italian cinema, and the French New Wave signaled-and which the Catholic Legion of Decency resisted tooth and nail-the program features groundbreaking scenes from The Miracle, Baby Doll, Lolita, and other films. The 1952 Supreme Court decision granting First Amendment protection to motion pictures is also highlighted
