This introductory chapter discusses censorship in movies, which was fully recognized during the late twentieth century, when the new technology of moving pictures arrived. The fear of movies was so great that previous methods of control could no longer suffice, and reformers turned to the government for help in controlling the film content. The discussion looks at the nature of, and the fight against, censorship, and also examines the special capacity for evil that movies were suspected of carrying.
