What films were considered risque during the 1940s? I know that many noir films were considered risque because they featured women with morals one might consider questionable during the time, like Double Indemnity.

The first one that comes to mind for me is the Howard Hughes film "The Outlaw" (1943) with Jane Russell. It's described by some as an adult oriented sex-western. I think it took several years to get in into the theaters because of the storyline and the blatant emphasis on Miss Russell's.. uh, hmmm..  lungs.

Pornography has existed for an extremely long time – it wasn't just the film of the 40s. It's existed pretty much since the US Civil War if I recall correctly. As for risque films, these types of films were considered very taboo then. A movie like "The Hangover" nowadays is something everyone watches, but back then, it would be deplorable to watch such a movie.

It's funny that you say that because I was visiting my grandmother at a retirement resort and at the pool I heard some older women discussing The Hangover. It's a movie that is not all that risque to me, but this woman described it as literal pornography. It reminded me how much standards have changed over the years.
