  1. What was the last pre-Code movie you saw, either on TCM, FMC, DVD, or other source? How well did you like it?

    "THE DIVORCEE" (1930)

    One thing I like about pre-Codes, is despite the clothing styles, and outdated cars, the themes are still similar to today. I like very much that Jerry is a modern girl who works after marriage. When her hubby cheats, she sets out to settle the score, much to the old-fashioned outrage of the cheating husband. With different clothing and actors, this story could probably play today and be somewhat successful. Of course, we'd see much more skin and sex...

    Pre-Code in the Jungle

    Would WHITE ZOMBIE count too? Not too sure where this one takes place, but it seems like it might be an island.

    Great Pre-Codes in October

    Arsine Lupine is fabulous! I saw it another time it played on TCM. I also wish we had some Kay Frances movies playing in October. How about Ann Harding too?

    Three Cornered Moon (1933)

    I absolutely LOVE Mary Boland! She is always wonderful in her film roles. Is this scheduled to air?

    Evelyn Trivia: Was she Curley's wife...? (just kidding!)

    silent film crushes

    Did Colleen Moore really have one brown eye and one green eye, or is this just a colorization error? (By the way...the photo is lovely!)

    Rare Columbia pre-codes on TCM in September

    Drednm, what do you think of Evelyn Knapp? Why do you think she wasn't a bigger star? She was certainly beautiful (saw her in Sinners Holiday).
  10. Has anyone seen this? I was going through some old VHS and found this--it probably aired 15 years ago or so on TCM, and I think it was made in 1929. It is an all talkie, but you can tell it's an early one. The lead character is Olive Borden. Does anyone know anything about her other than what's on the She is very cute and looks like the personification of the 1920s flapper with her rouged lips, fringe dress and bobbed hair. I believe she died fairly young, but I was wondering if anyone had anything new to share about her.

    There are so many...Kay Francis, Barbara Stanwyck, Jean is hard to make a real choice!

    documentaries that you can't seem to forget

    I saw one on HBO in 1985 or 1986 called "Radium City." It involved a town where the women were employed painting the dials of clocks & watches with radium, so they would glow in the dark. The women were taught to put the paintbrushes in their mouth, and draw it through their lips to get a nice point, and then paint...thus poisoning themselves w/radium! The cancer & leukemia suffered in this town was tremendous, and I believe as of the mid 80s, the ground was still contaminated, and a geiger counter still brings up high readings. I saw this once, and then set up the VCR to tape it...forgot to label it...and taped over it! I have regretted it since, and have never been able to locate another copy.

    #1 Pre-Code Lady

    Who would you nominate as the #1 pre-Code lady? The woman who most embodies the spirit of the pre-Code era of movie making?

    Would you buy a Warren William box set?

    I would love to buy a set of Warren William! How about these: Under Eighteen Match King Beauty & the Boss Three on a Match Actually, anything w/Warren William would be awesome. I love his line in the pre-Code UNDER EIGHTEEN: "Why don't you take off your clothes & stay awhile." It doesn't get any better than that!
