MBDS Showcase #44 - Pre-Code Hollywood An Introduction
For this episode I'm joined by Kristen Lopez as we take a look at one of the more overlooked era's of cinema history "Pre-Code Hollywood".
A brief period between the introduction of the first sound pictures in 1929 to the enforcement of the “Motion Picture Production Code” in 1934 there existed an era known as Pre-Code Hollywood. A wild time for cinema as films were produced including profanity, drug use, prostitution, infidelity and abortion, while it also produced films featuring heroic criminal figures and strong female characters in what would be one of the wildest, yet still strangely overlooked era in cinema history and one we set out to explore on this episode.
