I've added a group called 'Putting a Name to the Face'. It takes some scrolling through, but there's many a pic of the more obscure talent from the Pre-Code era. I constantly add to the list. Help spread the word! Thanks.

I don't know about a new thread but I'll try to keep this one going. I love Norma Shearer and find many of her films that were considered naughty refreshingly adult in the way the term should be used-frankly dealing with mature topics rather than today where it means four letter words and anything but in bed. A Free Soul and The Divorceeare just as current today as they were 80 years ago (can you believe that?) and her version of The Barretts is much better tha the 50's one even with it in color.

I also found Night Nurse, Baby Face, and the Ann harding-William Powell film I saw on TCM this month worth watching. If any of these were made today the storylines that make them so long- lasting would be shoved aside to rub our noses in the purely sexual aspects. Adult? Hardly. I'll take pre-code.

That old thread hasn't had any posts since I posted a few photos back in July.
And I see a lot of images have fallen by the waywide, sadly enough.
Anyway, I was thinking it would be nice to start this up again.
I am not a big rules guy. Obviously, TCM would frown on nudity, but other than that, post what you want! If it's a great photo, and you aren't sure if it's from later than July of 1934, who cares??? Post it!

Most of the photo hosting sites seem to make everything a thumbnail now, which I guess will make pages load faster. Again, I personally don't care if they are, or are not thumbnails!

I don't care if you reply on an image to say you like it. I just don't care! Well, I care about the photos! ;)

Anyway, I will start this off with some Carole Lombard images I have found on the web, in thumbnail format. Please add whatever you have, of whomever you have! :)

EDIT: Gee, those would go left to right on other forums, not straight down...sigh....
