Forbidden Hollywood

Recommended Posts

I own the box set (which I am in LOVE with!) and other owners may notice the set is called "Forbidden Hollywood Volume I"

 

What movies would you like to see on Volume II?

Just wish they could come up with some extra features. Many people were disappointed with the first volume of the DVD set because it didn't have any extras.

Well they said there will a documentary in the next set, but even that doesn't seem like enough. I'm sure we'll also get trailers and intros from Robert Osborne, but I think the lack of extras is why we'll be getting 6 films from now on.

Maybe the first set was kind of a trial balloon... and yeah, RO should definitely record some nice new intros!!! :D

Some interesting titles below. I have a few of them. I just picked up one interesting title SCANDAL FOR SALE, a 1932 Universal with Charles Bickford. Too bad the Universal pre-code films are not available. Films like NIGHT WORLD and UP FOR MURDER are great viewing and would benefit greatly from studio releases.

I agree with that. I doubt that these films will see the light of day anytime in the near future. Shearerchic04, I left a message in your inbox.

I apologize. I got confused with Madame Satan - which is one of the craziest movies I have ever seen. Has Madame Racketeer ever been shown on TCM? Again I am sorry for the mix-up.

the missing opening dance - this has been cut down by 2/3rd's at least, and at the end of the dance, Garbo appears back to the screen, Uncovered so to speak, another chop up is the love scene with Garbo and Navarro after she closes her drapes in the first encounter they have, it seems she comes out (there is a picture on the back of the DVD cover of this scene that is not in the DVD release) in a see-thru negligee and what ensues is a torrid love scene and another scene cut out is the scene again with Navarro after he puts out the votive candle, I understand that he picks her up and carries Mata to his bedroom, etc,,,,,,I am sure the movie really sizzles in the first, uncut, unchopped, uncensored version!
