Editorial Reviews

Audacious, controversial and shockingly frank, Forbidden Hollywood: Volume Six turns the spotlight on adultery, alcoholism, prostitution and racism, issues the Production Code would soon ban from the screen. Starring the pre-Code era’s biggest stars, including John Gilbert, Richard Barthelmess, Myrna Loy, Kay Francis and Ann Dvorak, these four rarely seen gems are a provocative reflection of American mores in a not-so-innocent time. The Wet Parade (1932): Demon whiskey brings ruin to two families in this all-star adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s impassioned novel. Downstairs (1932): A philandering chauffeur (Gilbert) creates havoc in an upper-class household. Mandalay (1934): A Russian refugee (Francis) seeks revenge upon the ex-lover (Ricardo Cortez) who sold her into lavery. Massacre (1934): A college-educated Sioux (Barthelmess) wreaks vengeance upon the white officials who abused his family and cheated his people.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Series Goes On... April 10, 2013
The latest in the Forbidden Hollywood series has a Kay Francis (always a treat to watch) film that is worth purchasing the whole set, although a Pre-code Richard Barthelmess film is another good reason.

1934 Mandalay with Kay Francis, Ricardo Cortez, & Lyle Talbot is the main feature. The scene where boards the boat at the last minute with no luggage, gets a cabin, & next we see her she is unpacking a trunk is incredible. Mandalay is 5 star stuff - not to be missed

The other films are: Massacre (1934) a good solid movie with Barthelmess & Ann Dvorak (another great actress); The Wet Parade (1932) an OK (& long!) movie with Walter Huston, Myrna Loy, & Neil Hamilton; & Downstairs (1932) a pretty good but downbeat film with John Gilbert. Overall, a pretty good assortment.

Some of the films include the original trailers, but there are no other extras. Warner Archives has a lot of pre-codes available, most of them minor films. The Forbidden Hollywood collections are the best. Note: this review is based on the films, not the quality of the discs or the format!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic movies February 24, 2014

Great movies. Wish WB made these movies with better manufacturing other than DVD-R but I'll take this anytime. I hope they continue to do more of the Pre-Code films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set! January 28, 2014

I love just about every film that WA has put into the Forbidden Hollywood series, and can't wait for more releases - I'm surprised they didn't put out a set just for Kay Francis instead of individual releases, considering the number of pre-codes she was in.
