Baby Doll
Elia Kazan's Baby Doll (1956) with Carroll Baker as the title character, publicized the fact that The Legion of Decency, an organization of the Roman Catholic Church in the US, had condemned the film for its shocking subject matter. Earlier, Roberto Rossellini's landmark film The Miracle (1951) had also been condemned by Cardinal Spellman, but it wasn't used for publicity purposes.
