When Hollywood Went Wild– Pre-Code Shockers !!


Groundbreaker and Trailblazer NORMA SHEARER-- The First Lady of the Screen

Here’s something I came across that will warm up your chilly Saturday: a compilation of “pre-code” clips from Hollywood’s pre-1934 halcyon days, when men were men and women were… tougher!


You’ll find many of your favorites here, along with some faces you might not recognize. In any event, these ladies and gentlemen steamed up the screen until the existing “decency codes” suddenly and rigorously began to be enforced.

Thanks to Matthew C. Hoffman for his compilation!
