Perversion for Profit is a 1965 anti-porn documentary film. Very little footage is shown apart from the presenter in the studio: George Putnam. His didactic pronouncements, tone of voice, and Brylcreemed presentation would seem hilarious to many today, and this manner is constantly (and justifiably) parodied on TV - The Simpsons perhaps being a good example. Most of the facts Putnam presents are statements of opinion - connected without demonstrating correlation, much less causation. He doesn’t discuss the morality of censorship at all. It’s well worth seeing, though, as an example of propaganda - although less subtle than, say, Triumph of the Will, it’s still crisp, clean filmmaking.
Some choice quotes from the film beyond the split.
_‘The preoccupation with the female breast…which has become a fetish’ _(duh)
‘Very few blind people join nudist colonies’
‘They tell youngsters that… it’s thrilling, it provides kicks to be a homosexual… and every other kind of deviant’
_‘This same type of rot caused 16 of the 19 major civilisations to vanish from the earth’ _
