The Foul Language Filter

Additional Information/Resources


“Here’s looking at you, kid.” CASABLANCA

This e-book features films from each decade and every genre. Many of the films listed were made in a time when filmmakers had to refrain from including curse words, exploitive sexuality or desensitizing violence. To younger members of the family, that means, these films are old! Understandably, a younger generation will not relate to styles and mannerisms of a time gone by, but here is something to keep in mind. Though haircuts change and clothing tightens, people all desire to be warm, to be fed, to be loved, to be respected, etc. In other words, we share a commonality with those of all generations. We’re really not all that different from one another. The following movies will entertain because they contain the most special special effect of all: great storytelling. (A few may be hard to find, but are worth the effort.)

Please keep in mind that it’s impossible to find a film wherein someone couldn’t find something to object to. My intention is to point out quality movies for your edification, films that will not bombard your senses with crudity or contain a flagrant disrespect for family values.

Note: Several films listed will be more enjoyable with the use of the TVGuardian foul language filter. The following symbol will be listed next to the films most in need of the TVGuardian: Use TVG.
