Before 1934, Hollywood was doing whatever it wanted, and politicians, religious groups, and censorship boards were having fits.
The Motion Picture Production Code was established to take the immorality out of movies and make Hollywood pictures safe.
See four films that show what movies were like before the Code on Thursdays at 7 p.m.:
Tonight, enjoy Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), starring Joan Blondell and Dick Powell. Wealthy songwriter Brad Richard’s family objects when he befriends three unemployed showgirls.
Uncensored Hollywood: A Pre-Code Film Series runs on October 4, 11, 18 & 25.
This event is free and open to all. Drop in for a fun time.
