There's something in here to worry everyone! I'm still trying to figure out how "Emmanuelle" and Linda Lovelace in "Deep Throat" fit into the scheme of things, but they are in here, too. Loaded with B&W photos and 8 pages of color movie posters and production artwork. Due to nudity, you must be 18 years of age or older to order this book. See covers  $16

MONTY PYTHON'S THE LIFE OF BRIAN/MONTY PYTHON SCRAPBOOK OF BRIAN OF NAZARETH by Monty Python (Chapman, Cleese, Gilliam, Idle, Jones, and Palin). Softback, FN, 1979, First Printing, Fred Jordan Books/Grosset & Dunlap, ISBN: 0-448-16568-6, size 11.25 x 13.75 inches, 128 pages, O/P. Actually, two books in one, printed to flip in opposite directions. The "LOB" half is the film script with sepia toned pictures from the film scattered throughout. The "Scrapbook" half is a loose behind the scenes look at the making of the film, with color and B&W photos, and lots of additional humor. Neal Adams draws a "How It All Began" strip, excerpts from Michael Palin's diary, some Terry Gilliam animation drawings, and much more Pythonesque humour. Also, a photo of Keith Moon, to whom the book is dedicated. This is the original, out of print, oversized, first printing of the book, which was later reduced in size and reprinted as just the film script. There's mild nudity throughout, so caveat emptor, if that sort of stuff bothers you. But, keep in mind, Brian is "a very naughty boy." See both covers  $45

An additional 20 pages of B&W photos are bound into the center of the book. John Trevelyan relates his experiences as chairman of the British Cinema Advisory Sub-Committee from 1952 to 1971. He describes how the board originally functioned and then how censorship changed over the 12 year period he performed his duties. Many of the groundbreaking films of the fifties and sixties are covered. Trevelyan's retirement preceded the releases of the powerhouse trio of "The Devils," "A Clockwork Orange" and "Straw Dogs," which forever changed the way censorship would be handled in UK cinema, but they are all discussed. An absolutely fascinating first hand account of censorship in British cinema. Preface by Alexander Walker. Includes appendices with extracts, cuts, codes and the U.S. MPAA.
