40 years of censorship in Spain

A book, La censura franquista en el cartel de cine (or, Franco’s censorship in movie posters), by Bienvenido Llopis, analyzes 40 years of censorship in Spain.
Book contains posters, comics, novels, news stories, postcards, photographs, magazine covers.
After censorship, movie posters with Holywood stars, like: Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth or Marilyn Monroe, have little common with their original version. Covered legs and neckline, scenes with beds were cut of. Sex became a real obsession for the regime, and it was persecuted by censors.
