New Online Event Series starts with THE STYLE OF SIN: JOAN CRAWFORD June 14


As promised, I am bringing my 1930s Pre-Code series THE STYLE OF SIN to you online! I'm mixing up the order as well as the films I feature, so it will be slightly different than my series at the Egyptian Theatre last year. Case in point: the first event will focus entirely on Joan Crawford. Craft your favorite cocktail and join me Sunday, June 14 for a little illicit fun.

THE STYLE OF SIN: JOAN CRAWFORD
Pre-Code Film with Kimberly Truhler

The Pre-Code era of Hollywood refers to the years between 1930 when the Production Code was adopted and 1934 when it was in full effect. The Code prohibited seeing many sins on screen, so Pre-Code films are beloved for how risqué and provocative they could be with their look and content.

Though costume design is important in film, it is particularly significant to the plot and production of the movies selected for this series. In each talk, you will also learn about the costume designers themselves - how they contributed to the style of the studios along with the evolution of the actresses' careers and personal style.

Join me for this 6-part series that introduces you to some of the most popular actresses of the Pre-Code era - Joan Crawford, Kay Francis, Jean Harlow, Barbara Stanwyck, Carole Lombard, and Joan Blondell.

The first event focuses on the early life and style of Joan Crawford with a deep dive into films like Our Blushing Brides (1930) and Letty Lynton (1932).

Upcoming events can always be seen on the GlamAmor Events page.
