Sadism in the Movies
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Le Sadisme au Cinéma was first published by Eric Losfeld's publishing house Le Terrain Vague in 1964. The title should more aptly be Violence in the Movies as this book mentions very few examples of sexual sadism.
A badly translated edition appeared in 1965 on Medical Press of N.Y. . The translation is by Steve Hult, for example the film Peeping Tom is billed as The Peeper, I suppose a literal translation of the French title Le Voyeur. The images are all listed at the back of the book, without mentioning the titles and an index is not included. The French copies of this book are always expensive, usually starting at 60 Euros. A very interesting book, but if you are looking for sexual sadism in the movies, grabbing a copy of Jean Streff's (French-language only) Le Masochisme au cinéma might satisfy you more.
