The Yellow Teddybears


The early 60s saw censorship slowly slipping and UK producers cashing in with a series of controversial (by the standards of the day) movies that pushed the sexual content envelope to it's limit.

Tony Tenser, later of UK horror specialists Tigon Pictures, was behind this 1963 movie which was packaged as an exploitative and pervy look at burgeoning sexuality among teenage school girls but was in fact a message movie about the perils of pre-marital love making.

In previous decades it was always easier to pass more tawdry material past the censor if you dressed it up as having a societal purpose. Although entirely unshocking when compared to even our prime time soap opera's, The Yellow Teddybears is still a good document of the attitudes of the time and the low budget films being made for adult audiences in the early 60s.
