Some of the most celebrated and accomplished films ever made have been subject to censorship. Reasons for their suppression vary. Most obviously, perhaps, it's because of excessive violent or sexual content. However, movies with religious or politically sensitive themes are also prone to the censor's wrath. And there are pictures that have been withheld or edited simply for including cast members who identify as LGBTQ+. Whatever the reasons, a banned or controversial film is very often a successful one, the publicity surrounding its repression only serving to excite the box office.

So, what famous movies fell foul of censorship? Find out by clicking through this list of banned or edited films.
