Found something...

Postby rotwilerblue » Fri Feb 06, 2009 9:49 am  0 likes

I did not edit this I just found it and copied and paste....

Here it is:


FEATURE FILMS (Mainstream, non-pornographic) in date order. This does not aim to be comprehensive, but should be fairly complete. Please post any additions you have.

Broken Blossoms. 1919 (USA. Dir. D.W. Griffiths. A young oriental man falls in love with a beautiful twelve-year-old waif, played by Lillian Gish, and is heartbroken when she is killed by her sadistic father. Available on video. From the novel Limehouse Nights, available from the US Ophelia Editions address)

Madchen in Uniform. 1931 (Germany. Dir. Leonitine Sagan. Moving melodrama about a schoolgirl's affair with a female teacher. Still much acclaimed today, and available on video. Banned by the Nazi's, which is all the more reason to see it)

Pennies From Heaven 1936. (USA. 8-year-old orphan Edith Fellows falls in love with Bing Crosby, a singing ex-convict who she meets in fairground. An antique mix of comedy, melodrama and musical, but still enjoyable, although the problems caused by officialdom are eventually ironed out by marriage and adoption)

Major And The Minor. 1942. (USA. The 'Lolita' of the 1940s. Comedy)

The Curse of the Cat People. 1944. (USA. Dir. Gunther von Fritsch. Sequel to the eerie 'Cat People', this stars the six-year-old Ann Carter as a lonely sensitive girl who summons up the ghost of the first 'human cat', Simone Simon, in what seems to become a lightly disguised allegory of inter-generational 'forbidden' love, complete with 'good' child-lover and 'bad' child-hater conflict at the end. You may 'read' it as just a good creepy psychological ghost story, but it is certainly very open to interpretation. It helps if you've also seen the original 'Cat People', but see 'Curse...' anyway and judge for yourself. Available on video)

Portrait of Jennie. 1948. (US. An etherial romance between two generations; a struggling New York painter and a mysterious little girl he falls in love with in Central Park, and whose age moves from childhood to womanhood as the film progresses. Charmingly handled with expert direction, photography and acting all round, and a lyrical score taken from Debussy's 'Afternoon of a Faun'. Based on the novel by Robert Nathan. Available on video)

The Search. 1948. (US. Stars Montgomery Clift in his first starring role, as a GI in Germany who finds a ten-year-old boy among the expertly-filmed rubble of Berlin. He goes about trying to adopt the boy, but after a tear-jerking parting... well, I won't give the ending away. Buy a big box of kleenex and be prepared to weep buckets.)

Don't Ever Leave Me. 1949. (UK. An antique now, but rather charming in its own fey way. Comedy, with tinges of seriousness)

Olivia. 1951 (France. Dir. Jacqueline Audry. Covers similar ground to Madchen In Uniform (1931), but is nowhere near as positive, seeing lesbian/teacher 'crushes' as 'phases' which 'healthy girls' should leave behind as they grow into same-age heterosexuality. From a psuedonymous novel (1949) by Dorothy Bussey, sister of Lytton Strachey)

The Spanish Gardener. 1956 (UK. Dir. Philip Leacock. Film of the A.J. Cronin novel, starring Dirk Bogarte. There's an excellent article on the film by Andy Medhurst,

'"It's as a man that you've failed" - masculinity and forbidden desire in

'The Spanish Gardener'.' IN: Kirkham, P. and Thumin, J. (Eds.) You Tarzan -

masculinity, movies and men. Lawrence and Wishart, London, 1993. Though Bogarte is unconvincing - no attempt at a Spanish accent - this is an very accomplished film with a top-notch cast)

Shane. 1953. (USA. Classic western. Boy-lovers should adore it)

The Scamp. 1957. (UK. Dir. Wolf Rilla. Richard Attenborough stars as a childless schoolteacher who cares for a ten-year-old working-class boy)

The Young One. 1961. (Mexico. Interesting if somewhat sordid early Luis Bunuel film)

The Greengage Summer. 1961. (UK. Dir. Lewis Gilbert. Complex romantic drama with Kenneth Moore and Susannah York. From the novel by Rumer Godden)

Term Of Trial. 1962. (UK. Dir. Peter Glenville. Schoolteacher Lawrence Olivier is accused of indecently assaulting a 15 year-old pupil. Rousing courtroom speech from Olivier at the end, and the film generally treats the theme with respect and depth.)

Lolita. 1962. (USA. Disappointing and shapeless film of the novel, despite Peter Sellers and Nabokov's Oscar-nominated screenplay. Available on video)

Sundays And Cybele. 1962 (French, orig. title 'Cybele ou les Dimanches'. Moving story about the love between a 30-something amnesiac and a twelve-year-old

orphan girl. Not on video)

This Special Friendship. 1965 (France. No further details)

High Wind In Jamaica. 1965 (UK. Dir. Alexander McKendrick. Very moving and unconventional melodrama with Anthony Quinn as a pirate who captures a group of children. Available on video. From the best-selling 1929 novel by Richard Hughes, whose recent biography shows him to have had a 'Lewis Carroll' type erotic attraction to little girls)

Sky West and Crooked. 1966. (UK. Stars Haley Mills. Available on video)

Twinky (Italy/US, 1969. Charles Bronson and Susan George; touching love story, with flashes of comedy, about a young teenage bride who arrives in New York with her fourty-something husband, and the problems and prejudices they face. Not really paedophilic, but about a intergenerational relationship)

Le Souffle au Coeur. 1970 ? (France. No further details)

Death In Venice. 1971. (Italy. From the famous novelette by Thomas Mann. Available on video)

Mourir d'aimer. 1971. (France. Dir. Andrea Cayette. Fictional account of the 'Russier affair', when a woman had an affair with an adolescent during the May 1968 events in Paris. Won the 'Grand Prix du Cinema Francais', but is now hard to locate)

The Mark. 1971. (UK. Further details unknown, concerns the blackmail of a paedophile)

The Last Snows Of Spring 1973 (Italy. No further details)

The Offence. 1973. (UK. Dir. Sidney Lumet. Sean Connery and Ian Bannen star as detective and alleged paedophile, locked in a battle of wills as Connery gradually realises that it is he who harbours dark thoughts about children, not the alleged paedophile he is brutally questioning)

Paper Moon. 1973. (USA. Charming Oscar-winner. From the novel 'Addie Pray')

Short Eyes 1977 (USA. Not for the squeamish - an innocent man accused of child molesting is subject to brutal treatment in prison. Available on video)

Pretty Baby. 1978. (USA. Disjointed and rather distastful. Available on video)

L'Adolescente. 1979. (French. No further details. Available on video)

Little Darlings. 1980. (USA. Purient 'girls coming-of-age' story. Available on video)

The Nest. 1981. (Spain. Dir. Jaime De Armenian. No further details.

Available on video in USA.)

Dreamchild. 1985. (USA/UK. Dir. Gavin Miller. Award-winning story of Lewis Carroll and his love for the real Alice, Alice Lidell, and her subsequent life and memories of him. C4 UK TV movie(?) )

Lamb. 1988. (UK. Channel Four UK. Not available on video. From the novel by

Bernard MacLaverty, about an Irish priest who takes a boy away from a cruel children's home)

Summer Vacation 1999. 1988. (Japan. Dir. Shusuke Kaneko. Exquisite gay love story of four schoolboys who stay behind at their boarding school in the countryside during the summer holidays. Visually striking, full of mystery and ghostly auras. Not on video)

Kung Fu Master. 1989. (France. Dir. Agnes Varda. Story of love between a 40 year old woman and a 15 year old boy)

"Great Balls Of Fire !" 1989. (USA. Available on video. Story of Jerry Lee Lewis's romance and marriage with his 13-year-old cousin. Very positive story)

The Stolen Children. 1992. (Italy. Dir. Gianni Amelio. Based on a true story of young policeman entrusted to take a 11-year-old prostitute and her younger brother

from Milan to Rome, and the trust and love that grows between them)

Voor een Verloren Soldaat. 1992 (Netherlands. Dir. Roeland Kerbosh. Based on the novel by Rudi van Dantzig, about a boy who falls in love with a soldier)

Leolo. 1993. (Canada. Bizzare family (sex) life of a young boy. Available on video)

Leon. 1995 (France. Dir. Luc Bresson. Mainstream film about a hit-man and a twelve-year-old girl, and the love affair that growes between them. Good reviews)

Released here: viewtopic.php?t=668 Still seeded, English subs too I believe.

I don't understand the list: seems mostly boys, but has lots of girls movies too. Over a dozen here at FLM already, just that I recoignized. What is it listing? FLM is a testament to how incomplete the list is unless it's something I can't imagine.
