‘Banned in the USA’ is a unique account of the ways in which British films released in America had to undergo an unprecedented form of self-censorship in order to meet the requirements of the US Production Code. Anthony Slide tells here for the first time the inside story of this on-going dialogue between the British film-making industry and the American censors, making full use of the Production Code Administration’s recently opened files. Film-by-film, from the 1930s through to the 1960s, he shows graphically how film censorship in America operated in relation to over 200 British films. He reveals, for example, the ways in which British producers had to delete swear words, material offensive to film viewers in other countries, suggestive dialogue, ‘sex perversion’ and excessive violence. This is a valuable and enjoyable reference for film scholars and enthusiasts, as well as a fresh guide to understanding the censorship process in action.
