An enticing trio of suave silver screen seducers lies at the heart of this fourth collection of pre-Code sensations whose subject matter would soon be forbidden by the infamous Production Code. William Powell, Kay Francis and David Manners prove that sophistication and sexiness once walked hand in hand – ably abetted (and abedded!) by the likes of Joan Blondell, Loretta Young and George Brent. Powell headlines in Jewel Robbery and Lawyer Man, while his Jewel costar Francis works late with David Manners in Man Wanted (all three directed by cinema maestro William Dieterle), who in turn teaches innocent Loretta Young just why They Call It Sin. From the simply frank to the jaw-droppingly shocking, this forbidden foursome promises nights of delight.
This collection includes: Jewel Robbery (1932), Lawyer Man (1932), Man Wanted (1932), They Call It Sin (1932)

I am pretty sure this was remastered in some way, or it's a lucky find.
The movie itself is quite interesting, the characters have a bit more depth than usual, I was surprised that Kay Francis and her husband almost consider not breaking up, as it seems many movies of this era dealt with marriage and love quite easily as it they were talking about buying a record.
Kay Francis looks beautiful, the sets are classic pro WB art déco, and her leading man also looks very good. Una Merkel is a hoot as usual.
This is a good package of a movie and will expect nothing less from the other movies. I held off buying the Forbidden Hollywood packages in DVD-R because these collections used to be so carefully packaged and now they are what they are, simply the movies, with their trailers. At least the menu screens and disc themselves look very good.
Kay Francis shows a great deal of charm, and William Powell is, well, he's William Powell; what more is there to say?
William Powell was as usual A -1
BUt I had not seen Kay Francis before and she was a delight.
Warning: These are NOT sexy films; just damn good old Hollywood!
you stopped at volume 10. I would like to buy more.
