You're Invited! Presenting STYLE OF SIN: JEAN HARLOW at Egyptian Theatre 8/25

Sunday, August 25 is the next event in my
6-part Pre-Code speaker/screening series at the American Cinematheque!


Sunday, August 25
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

Talk starts at 1:00 pm 
followed by screenings of Three Wise Girls (1932) and Red-Headed Woman (1932)

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.

This 6-part series that introduces you to some of the most popular actresses of the Pre-Code era - Barbara Stanwyck, Kay Francis, Jean Harlow, Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Blondell, and Joan CrawfordEach event will begin with one of my presentations followed by a double feature of films. There will be one event per month. 

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.

Upcoming events in the STYLE OF SIN series can be seen on the GlamAmor Events page.

I wore a 1930s inspired polka-dot dress from the 1960s

Several people fly in for the series, including my friend Isabella
who frequently channels Kay's style

For the Kay Francis event, 
we had Joseff of Hollywood jewelry on display from 1932's Jewel Robbery

This is the ring that Kay wanted so badly in the movie, a character in itself

Many thanks to Kristin and Tina Joseff,
who carry on the Joseff of Hollywood legacy

The courtyard of the Egyptian Theatre
still looks very much like it did at its opening in 1922

I've enjoyed reading your lovely & wonderfully researched blog for years & I'm so excited about your Film Noir style book! You have such wonderful style and was thrilled to see Delta--she looks wonderful! I hope y'all got to try on some of that jewelry. Much love from Katharine in Alabama :)
