Freedom of the Screen

Laura Wittern-Keller

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses a new culture which started in the 1950s and prevailed in the 1960s. It was based more on pacifism, egalitarianism, openness, and individuality. The growth of this new culture was aided by the rise of national media such as radio networks, television, and movies. The censors, on the other hand, were losing control of movie content, which they had once held in a lockdown. The chapter looks at the legacy of Ronald Freedman and the events—and movies—that followed after freedom of the screen was finally achieved. Peep shows and the infamous Deep Throat are also discussed here.

Keywords:   new culture, censors, Ronald Freedman, freedom, peep shows, Deep Throat, movie content, pacifism, egalitarianism, individuality
