Dir. Elia Kazan (1956).

Baby Doll was publicized with one of the largest posters in Times Square history (a nightie-clad Carroll Baker curled up in a crib, sucking . . . her thumb); New York's then archbishop, Francis Cardinal Spellman warned his flock that seeing the movie was in itself a sin. Your move.
