When you think Elvis Presley, images of the rockabilly hero shirtless, bound, and whipped probably don’t leap to mind. But as Tony Nourmand and Peter Doggett’s new book ‘Hollywood Bound’—which is being released today—shows, there is a long tradition of bondage in film. From Woody Allen’s hilariously dysfunctional turn as the evil Dr. Noah in ‘Casino Royale’ to the damsel bound to railroad tracks in ‘The Perils of Pauline,’ see photos of seducers trapping innocent maidens, monsters receiving their just deserts, and heroes who got bound and tortured.
