Dirty Words and Filthy Pictures: Film and the First Amendment

A lot to cover -- starting from the 1890s -- so not quite comprehensive. Most interesting is the early years, the later stuff covering more well-trod ground. Some great photos. One interesting film discussed was a 1960s homosexual prison short that actually lost in the Supreme Court (5-4), if without an opinion. YouTube provides some clips including this one.
