You're Invited! Presenting STYLE OF SIN: CAROLE LOMBARD at Egyptian Theatre 10/27

Sunday, October 27 is the next event in my
6-part Pre-Code speaker/screening series at the American Cinematheque!

Pre-Code Film with Kimberly Truhler

Sunday, October 27
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

Talk starts at 1:00 pm 
followed by screenings of Virtue (1932) and Twentieth Century (1934)

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. 

For last month's THE STYLE OF SIN: MARLENE DIETRICH at the Aero Theatre,
I wore a vintage 1970s tuxedo dress in honor of some of her vast influence

This series has been so popular that members of our classic film family have been flying in -
Jay and Connie Crump flew in from Detroit (above)
and Theresa Brown flew in all the way from New York

Even more of the wonderful members of the classic film family

Marlene wore Joseff of Hollywood jewelry in her films 
and Tina Joseff brought this brooch to share with me

The brooch was part of a rejected costume for Shanghai Express (above),
but Marlene loved it so much she worked it into a costume for Destry Rides Again

In October, we're back at the Egyptian Theatre

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