"Beauty and the Beast" has enjoyed a myriad of interpretations over the years. Most of us are keenly familiar with Disney's animated version. Children of the 70s may remember the made for TV version featuring George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere. However, in 1975, Walerian Borowczyk made "The Beast." This Rated X version is extremely difficult to watch, and beyond bestiality, touches on some taboo subjects, even in modern day cinema. This French film was banned in England for it's depictions of the sex organs and elongated sex scenes featuring animals. The depiction of the parish priest as a child molester may also have contributed to that ban.
