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, see Baby Face (1933), starring Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent. Gold digger Lilly Powers climbs to the top of the Gotham Trust Company by seducing and discarding man after man.
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.
