    I'm writing an essay for English about censorship in films and I am looking for places where I can find about specific examples. Any help would be appreciated.

    I can't realy help, but try Google.

    Otherwise, you might want to try looking at MPAA site to get some perspective.

    I'm sure if you ask around in the S&S thread, they'll help out. I remember there being a code back in the old days.

    Do a Google search on the Hayes Censorship Act; its guidelines controlled film censorship for years.

    OBVIOUS: The library. Countless books have been written on the subject. Amazon alone lists 10066 books under a search for "film censorship" (of course many are OOP).
