Years ago, I purchased a video copy "A Clockwork Orange", which I was hooked on in high school. Studying the background to this successful four time Oscar nominated film, I learned it's been banned from England since its release due to youth imitating the lead characters, all of who were gang members. You cannot buy, sell, or see this movie in England and the possibility of a modern remake may bring the furor back. It is kind of a present-day "The Moon Is Blue", a movie once banned for using the words "pregnant" and "virgin", words used in movies now.
