Pre-Code Gallery

1,028 posts in this topic

Remember please, this is the Pre-Code gallery. That is, subject matter pertaining to stars and films made PRIOR to 1934. Some films, but not all, made in 1934 ,escaped code regulations.

But the remake Waterloo Bridge material doesnt pertain to that period ,or category,since it was

released in the 1940's. The original story had been sanitized in that version to comply with

Code regulations.

You are welcome metsfan. Look forward to seeing more goodies. And to cascabel, thanks

for the spell check re Novarro ! Don't want to be a cinematic illiterate! Glad you liked my pics. TCM has run "The Barbarian". It's risque alright, but a little over-long. First half of the film he's a nerdy stalker and a nuisance. Just about the time you get tired of watching Myrna chase him off,

you begin to find out what a devil he is!

Great pictures, thanks! "Illicit" sounds exciting, hope to see it someday. I like the way you described Novarro's character perfectly. Not only is the film shocking but also thrilling to see such a daring character along the lines of Rudolph Valentino's sheik.
