How about a new Pre Code photo thread????

203 posts in this topic

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....

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.

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.

Try a site named IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/), which allows you note only to resize images, but to adjust them as well. I've used it for years, and it works beautifully.

 

Of course, you could always make Ann bigger by giving her a weird encounter with an alien...something that almost makes one wish the film "Attack Of The 50-Foot Woman" had been made during pre-Code!

Very steamy photo of super gorgeous *Lillian Bond.* Sadly, I haven't really seen her in much of anything. Not seeing her in a whole lot right here either. But could someone name some movies for me maybe? Thanks.

Jeffrey,

 

Lillian Bond is probably best remembered in the James Whale spookfest "The Old Dark House" but I liked her best playing the spoiled socialite in "Pick-Up" where she invites George Raft to a pajama party which is a precode riot ... She also had a role in "The Women" ...

Thanks for the great picture of Lilian Bond (note correct spelling of her first name).

She's always been one of my faves!

 

Here's a listing of her films:

Prince, you may have seen these posters and lobby cards before from The Cat Creeps. About all I can find.

Well, since I can't quite figure out why the photos one time, go side by side, then the next down in a long row, back to photo bucket for a bit....

 

The relatively unknown Elizabeth Allan.

 

Photobucket

 

And Evelyn Duchess isn't exactly a household name!

 

Photobucket

 

Joyce Compton is a bit better known....
