Perversion for Profit

This is an anti-pornography film from 1965 which links the “flood tide of filth” to the decline of western civilization. Excellent and hilarious, with commentary as salacious as it is zealous.  My favorite moment is at minute 3 when the camera shows a shot of a model reclining in a barnyard, then tilts up to a goat that happens to be tethered in the background. The announcer solemnly pronounces, “And this one, with its overtones of bestiality.”

    Perversion for Profit is a 1965 Eastmancolor propaganda film financed by Charles Keating and narrated by news reporter George Putnam. The film argues that sexually explicit materials corrupt young viewers and readers, leading to acts of violence and “perverted” attitudes regarding sex—including inclination toward homosexuality. Although Perversion for Profit is serious in its suggestion that pornography could erode the integrity of American culture, Peter L. Stein of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote in a 2003 review that it was “shrill and sometimes comical”.
