In the late 50's andearly 60's, Klaw was subjected to government prosecution. His conviction, later overturned, led to Klaw destroying most of his pictures and negatives. This rare film is one of two that features the remarkable Betty Page. The BBFCstated that this video was rejected on the grounds that the Board's guidelines state that mild fetishism may be represented, but in Irving Klaw we have scenes of women trussed, bound, gagged, spanked, shackled, handcuffed, slapped, tethered andsuspended. Such sequences of bondage, restraint and gagging (proffered as masturbation material) are very extensive and unacceptable. The distributor of this material has decided to re-edit two versions of Betty page's work by photographer Irving Klawthat will not breach our guidelines. We are awaiting their resubmission. Review from US Amazon : Queen of Curves The new DVD : Betty PageBondage Queen will be a desirable addition to any Bettie Page fan but I suppose that I was expecting the whole disk to be unpublished shots of the Queen of Curves as the title suggests. The several short movies presented are black and white filmstaken of some of Irving Klaw's models in their undies, being bound and gagged by Klaw's sister. Betty appears in a few and in many stills. The exclusive commentary by Bettie Page is a short written page or two, notthe audio file I hoped for. I enjoyed the movies of the models in their bras and panties, dark nylons and ultra high heels as they tried to walk in them but a more truthful title for the DVD would have been Irving Klaw's Bondage and Fetish models,Featuring Bettie Page.

Mumbled dialogue Mr Blonde: "Joe" banned banned UK: The film was informally banned from a video release from 1993 to 1995 See article from bbfc.co.uk The work was submitted in 1993 for its home video classification, but the video release would be delayed until 1995 because of the introduction of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill in 1993 and its lengthy passage throughParliament. In response to concerns about the effects of media violence, largely in the wake of the James Bulger murder in 1993, part of the Bill's remit was to make amendments to the Video Recordings Act 1984, under whichthe BBFC had been appointed as the statutory regulatory body for video. It also established within the VRA a specific harm test. This harm test required the BBFC to pay special regard (among the other relevant factors) to any harm thatmay be caused to potential viewers or, through their behaviour, to society by the manner in which the work deals with [such issues as] criminal behaviour [and] violent behaviour and incidents . Reservoir Dogs wasfinally granted an uncut 18 video certificate in May 1995, a considerable time after its video release in all the other major international markets, which did not prove too disconcerting for Tarantino who was reported to be delighted that thedelay had given the film an extended theatrical life in the UK. core_wide_else_narrow_endblockquote_p(); S&M - Why? Rejected in December 1996 with the following justification An erotic and in places pornographic video dealingwith human sexual activity in a context of force, restraint or infliction of pain. Although submitted as 'sex-education', it seemed to the Board to be selling the techniques of sado-masachism in a glossy and highly erotic manner, so that the educationalcontent was overwhelmed by the S&M content. The message that pain is th real source of pleasure seemed likely to encourage men to inflict pain without due consideration of the rights and vulnerabilities of their partners.

With Ajita Wilson, Andrea Guzon and Ursula Buchfellner. UK: Passed X (18) after about 17:00s of BBFC cuts for: UK 1982 cinema release titled Prisoners of the Flesh UK: The Export Version was banned by the BBFC for: UK 1994 Redemption VHS titled Sadomania The BBFC commented: A Women's prison video in which the female prisoners were coerced, degraded and brutalised. The treatment in Sadomania was often vicious in the extreme, with gladiatorial combat to the death between nakedprisoners, the torture of a prisoner by sticking needles into and around her nipples, the hunting down of a naked woman with guns and dogs, and the rape of a bound and screaming naked prisoner by an Alsation dog, viewed by the governor and his wife as asexy turn-on. See article from strangethingsarehappening.com . Distributor Nigel Wingrove wrote: Twenty years ago Redemption Films released Succubus and I received a written warning from the BritishBoard of Film Classification, that Jess Franco was a director whose films the BBFC regarded as bordering on criminal. I was told that were I to attempt to release other films by him or to bring them into the country there would be consequences... A yearlater I submitted Demoniacs and Sadomania and both were categorically banned with the implicit threat that by pushing the work of Jess Franco I was, indirectly, championing criminal sexual material and that if I continued I too would face not civil, butcriminal proceedings. 2b1af7f3a8
