finally some pre-code movies for fans in Australia

Recommended Posts

TCM Australia have finally started playing some pre-code movies. And about time too! Last week we got ILLICIT. Barbara Stanwyck as a woman who decides marriage is fatal to romance (can't argue with that). Stanwyck was delightful. Not a bad little film.


The week before we got PRIVATE LIVES, a much better film. I'm finally able to see what the fuss is about Norma Shearer. She's fabulous!

Hi! I'm from Australia too. I just about collapsed when I saw that

"Beauty and the Boss" and "Employee's Entrance" was on a few

weeks ago. I think it is part of a series called "Risque Sunday".

Next Sunday they have on "The Easiest Way" (1931) with Constance

Bennett, "Lawyer Man" (1932) which I think is really good with William

Powell and "The Purchase Price" (1932) - I think about a mail order

bride with Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent (sigh!!).

Unfortunately "Risque Business" seems to have been a one-month only feature. Then we're back to TCM Australia's normal programming, which means the same boring movies played over and over and over again. I'm sure before the month is out we'll be getting the Andy Hardy movies again. The horror, the horror. It's so heart-breaking to hear about the great stuff that TCM screens in the US and to compare it to what we get here.

A few years ago there was a "Silent Sundays" on for a few months -

that was it. TCM often show clips from "The Crowd" (a film I have

wanted to see for many years) and "He Who Gets Slapped" so why

can't we see them . It is so annoying - don't get me started.

I have also been waiting years for a repeat of "The Case of Miss Lucky

Legs" (1935) since my tape went kaput - they must have it - why don't

they show it?
