Shearer. Davis. Chatterton. Stanwyck. The women of an uncensored film era!

Illicit sex. Glorified vice. Crime that pays. "You can't do that" said the film industry's Production Code. But in the pre-Code era, Hollywood could - and did - with lots of classic style. On Disc 1 of this set of five pre-Code sizzlers, Norma Shearer is The Divorcee - her Best Actress Oscar-winning role - who believes sexual freedom is for women, too. And she's also A Free Soul who falls for gangster Clark Gable (and is defended in a murder trial by Best Actor Academy Award winner Lionel Barrymore). Disc 2 delivers platinum-haired Bette Davis in Three on a Match's searing tale of adultery and Ruth Chatterton as a tycoon who buys herself boy toys in Female. And on Disc 3, Barbara Stanwyck defies sinister Clark Gable to protect an endangered child in Night Nurse.
