Description
Three Classic Films From Before The Censors Took The "Sin" Out Of Cinema!

In the early 1930s, before Hollywood began enforcing a self-imposed Production Code, many films allowed for extraordinary frankness including nudity, adultery and prostitution. In this restored and remastered three-movie collection, three daring young actresses are featured in racy, riveting star vehicles.

Saucy Jean Harlow shrewdly vamps unwitting executives to get what she wants in Red-Headed Woman (1932), scripted by Anita Loos (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), James Whale (Frankenstein) directs Waterloo Bridge (1931), starring Mae Clarke in the gritty first film version of the acclaimed wartime romance. Added to the National Film Registry in 2005, Baby Face (1933) stars Barbara Stanwyck as an amoral beauty who sleeps her way to the top. This collection boasts both the Original Theatrical Release and a Prerelease Version, recently discovered and restored by the Library of Congress, before censors of the day demanded the elimination of several scenes.

Comments about this product:

Baby Face was the only title I had seen before. All 3 are provocative. I especially liked Waterloo Bridge, but my viewing was trunkated at chapter 21 when everything stopped cold. Turn off the player, eject, restart, jumped 21- it played until ch. 22 then stopped dead. Do it over again. The second DVD I obtained did the same. I think there must be an authoring problem. I will buy again when I know the programming issue is resolved.
