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.

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.

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 can be found on the GlamAmor Events page.
