The first banned films ever!
1. 1894, This silent film, ‘Carmencita’ was banned from
theatres in Newark, NJ by the city’s mayor.
Why? Visible underwear.
It is the first known example of film censorship.
2. Bedtime for the Bride is generally
considered to be the first ‘Adults Only’ film.
Why? We don’t know.
Not much happens.
3. Fatima’s Coochee-Coochee Dance is the first film to be censored by white bars.
This is the uncensored version.
4. After The Ball is the first
known film to feature nudity.
The director later married the film’s star.
5. Re-enactment of the Massacre at Wounded Knee
was made by the scout and hunter Buffalo Bill.
It was banned due to the sympathetic
portrayal of Native Americans.
6. The MPA board allows use of
the words ‘damn’ and ‘hell’ in films.
Two months later, Gone With The Wind is released
with the line ‘Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn’.
