[De Coulteray, George] Medical Press: New York, 1965. 4to. 446pp. 256 b&w full-page stills. Translated from the French by Steve Hult. Dust jacket heavily chipped, in mylar. Hinges have some tears but are intact. Suppressed in Paris. Can't imagine why.

Originally published as Le Sadisme au Cinéma by Le Terrain Vague in 1964, this volume reads more as a study of violence as opposed to sexual sadism in film, though there is a healthy amount written about the films of Luis Buñuel and de Sade has a lot to do with it. The US edition is much pulpier than its French counterpart, with double the photographic illustrations. Themes include: Bondage, Spanking, Death, Bride of the Gorilla, Sexual Assassins, Vampires, and Charlie Chaplin.
