Dates TBD
THE STYLE OF SIN 1930-1934
followed by double features of films

Guest speaker
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

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 7-part series that introduces you to some o the most popular actresses of the Pre-Code era through double features of their films - Barbara Stanwyck, Jean Harlow, Carole Lombard, Loretta Young, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Blondell, and Joan Crawford.

Though costume design is important in film, it is particularly significant to the plot and production of the movies selected for this series. 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.
