Included in this Issue #1 is "Baby Face" with Barbara Stanwyck. This one of my all time favorites. She is so naughty that it's fun to watch. I think I saw both versions on TCM. I know I saw the one with the ending where George Brent Dies. But just recently I saw the one with the ending where she is in the ambulance with him. It's so worth seeing the pre-released versions before they did the cutting.
Next is "Waterloo Bridge" with Mae Clarke. I haven't seen this movie yet, but hope to. It's sad that her personal life and career had all the problems it did.
The third movie reviewed is "Red-Headed Woman". I've watched that movie many times. Harlow is so sexy. This is one of my favorites too. I totally root for the bad girls. And wow, is she a bad girl!
These three Pre-codes Movies in this Companion Issue are perfect examples of how Hollywood Studio's lured movie audience's with provocative situations to the theater's in the 1930's and some of the psychology behind it.
It's enjoyable having the added information on these movies. All the tidbits and background history have been well researched and intelligently written. A great addition to any fan of pre-code movies. I totally recommend it, plus proceeds are going to the ASPCA!
