Last weekend, more than 200 fans of film and fashion got together to celebrate the early life and style of Joan Crawford! I couldn't have asked for a better audience for the first in my 6-part online Pre-Code series THE STYLE OF SIN

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.

If you missed the live event, you can now watch it on demand on Vimeo. You can either click that link or going through the trailer above. You'll learn about the origins of the Production Code in addition to Joan's career and evidence of her lasting legacy in fashion.

The rest of the series features other popular actresses of the Pre-Code era such as Kay Francis, Jean Harlow, Barbara Stanwyck, Carole Lombard, and Joan Blondell.

Kay Francis is the next event on Sunday, July 19 at 4 pm PT. Tickets are $10 - click to register on Zoom.

No Cinema Connection for this event's ensemble -
it's been hot in LA, so I just wanted to wear a summery blue dress
