Obscene

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 37 min.

Plot Summary
In 1951, Barney Rosset acquires Grove Press and soon becomes the most controversial publisher in America. Scandal attends almost every book he puts out, from an uncensored version of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer," the latter provoking an obscenity trial that goes all the way to the Supreme Court. Filmmaker Neil Ortenberg traces Rosset's life and career, and along the way interviews many of the authors Rosset made famous, infamous or both.
