Pre-Code Gallery

Recommended Posts

Having trouble copying URL from forum to pic upload page, so tried it in reverse: copying pic location to message post. Not working so well. Have to practice mailing to self before posting again.

Hi Ollie,


I missed Lady Killer (and Mae Clarke!) but recorded Hard to Handle and watched it last night. I found it enjoyable and thought Cagney gave a solid performance.


Mine is not a completely unbiased opinion though as I've really gravitated to pre-code films in my time here.

I won't try to articulate what I love about them so much right now - it would probably be easier to just write what I don't like about them -

but if as the saying goes, one picture paints a thousand words, then consider the first Pre-Code Gallery a lengthy (although absent) essay on what I love about pre-codes!


Anyhow, glad you like the pics - it's cool that you're finding a current use for these classic images!


Best, Jeff

Hey, looks like you got it!


I especially like The Conquering Horde and I see you've posted a different lobby card from Thunderbolt also.


Great pics - thanks for sharing!

Have "The Films of Fay Wray" from Mc Farland Pub. Its rather high-priced in light of its

relatively cheap-looking production. The authors/editors did a good job , but could have done a much better job on photos, quality of reproduction, and research on where are the Fay Wray films? Her own autobiography was pretty stingy with the behind-the scenes anecdotes, so

between these two books there seems to be a lot more to be told about this very beautiful

and beloved star.

Text reads: She's got that thing: Joan Blondell, Warner star, has in fact got two of them.(I add,

"plus two on top.") Her next picture is "The Devil Was Sick." Never heard of that one!
