Perversion for Profit

Perversion for Profit is a 1965 propaganda film financed by Charles Keating and narrated by news reporter George Putnam. A vehement diatribe against pornography, the film argues that sexually explicit materials corrupt young viewers and readers, leading to acts of violence and “perverted” attitudes regarding sex—including inclination toward homosexuality.

Today, Perversion for Profit is in the public domain, and it has become popular on the Prelinger Archives website and on YouTube.
