Sadism in the Movies
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Le Sadisme au Cinéma (1964) is a book by George de Coulteray, published by Éric Losfeld's publishing house Le Terrain Vague. The title should more aptly be Violence in the Movies as this book mentions very few examples of sexual sadism.
Sadism in the Movies is the English language title of the book, published in the United States by Medical Press in 1965. The translation by Steve Hult is appaling, for example the film Peeping Tom is referred to 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.
