Obscure Pre Code movies

4 posts in this topic

Some time ago I stumbled across a Pre Code movie about a sophisticated con woman. It's a really obscure title (or at least I think) and apparently it was made a trilogy around the character. Yeah, it's a trilogy of movies with the same con woman as a protagonist. The title of one of the movies , I guess it's the first one, is something on the lines of "The magnificent/ fabulous/ extraordinaire (some synonym) *insert name*". I know this is very little information but I searched and couldn't find so I thought here would be the best place to ask that. I'm sorry if I'm wasting your time but I had to ask because maybe someone knows.

 

Anyway anyone knows a expansive list of pre code titles?

Could they be:

 

 

THE NOTORIOUS SOPHIE LANG (1934)

 

 

THE RETURN OF SOPHIE LANG (1936)

 

 

SOPHIE LANG GOES WEST (1937)

 

 

All Paramount Pictures starring Gertrude Michael as Sophie Lang.

 

(It sure would be great to see these on TCM some day!)

Exactly, "notorious" is the adjective, I would never remember! Apparently the movie is not that obscure. Anyway, thank you very much!

I think that Murder at the Vanities needs to be better known. That film is a perfect example of a pre-Code-post-Prohibition movie.
