Condemned Movies and The Index Librorum Prohibitorum


Recommended Posts

As every good [and bad] Catholic knows, if one wants to find fodder for a fun film, then one need only look to the Index of Forbidden Books to find a tale that would make a great film.


The legend also it that the Vatican has the largest collection of pornography in the world in their library being that they would confiscate it and then add it to their domain. If true, I wonder if Russ Meyer ever availed himself of their library for new ideas? But I digress.

Tonight TCM begins the Condemned series of films banned by the Vatican, with I think "The Story of Temple Drake". I am very curious what Sister Rose Pacatte will be saying since she seems to already have a non-appreciative attitude toward vintage films, in the interview below calling the films in the series to be "old" and "not very good" anyway.


This opinion might be at odds with those of many film buffs who appreciate vintage films and there are many classics on the list of condemned films to be sure. But I will leave it to others to dispute or agree with the good sister after one is privy to her remarks.


I know I shall be watching all the films tonight with her comments, but will you?


For some reason these addresses down below will not pop up [Vatican conspiracy?], so just put the following in as a Google search and the article comes up:
