“Hey, it’s okay. They still probably allow your TV shows!”

6 Movies That Got Banned by Countries for Hilarious Reasons

#6. The Philippines Banned Every Movie Starring Claire Danes

Brokedown Palace is a 1999 drama that most of you have never seen which tells the story of two women getting arrested and imprisoned in Thailand for drug smuggling. Because the film is critical of the Thai government, the movie’s producers decided to shoot the whole thing in the Philippines instead, correctly reasoning that nobody would be able to tell the difference. As they expected, Brokedown Palace was totally banned in Thailand when it was finally released in theaters. A bit more unexpected was the film’s stone-fisted expulsion from the Philippines, who banned the movie after star Claire Danes did her absolute best to talk as much shit about the Philippines as she possibly could while they were filming.

Today on the Daily Dose of Dead we wrap up the Winterland shows and 1974 with Brokedown Palace from the 10/20/74 show.

Without a doubt one of the Grateful Dead’s most beautiful songs both musically and lyrically. The embodiment of the genius that was the combination of Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia. 

A quiet and wonderful first set performance of this song that would become more firmly positioned as an encore in later years.

This show was the return to the band of Mickey Hart who sat in for second and third set and encore. This was also the last time the mighty Wall of Sound graced the stage at a dead concert.
