Notes / History As they faced even tougher competition from television, cinemas featured high impact X certificate movies(the equivalent of the modern "18"), in a bid to attract larger audiences.

Films made during the 70s featured more sex and violence than ever before, some movies like Stanley Kubrick's "Clockwork Orange" were considered so extreme that they were actually banned.
