Precode Sunday Beauty Tip 2#: Lux Toilet Soap

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Oct 21, 2012

Over the years of looking through 1930's magazines and researching in general, one product seemed to stand out more than others: Lux Toilet Soap. It seemed to be everywhere, on every second page in Photoplay and Motion Picture magazines, featured on the Lux Radio Show and on billboards. Lux appeared read more

Barbara's First Talky: 'The Locked Door' (1929)

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Oct 17, 2012

While I was going through my Precode collection, I realised I have watched all (well probably most) of the more famous Precode films by the top actresses; for example, Kay Francis, Ruth Chatterton, Carole Lombard, Norma Shearer ect. But there are many, because of their obscurity and sometimes relati read more

The Mind Behind Precode: My Celebration of Noel Coward

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Oct 7, 2012

Although Noel was responsible for only five Precode films, his racy and outspoken look at relationships, sex and morality shaped the mood for the era. His plays remain firm favourites of mine because they are as relevant now as they were when they were first written. Here’s my small celebratio read more

Bette at Her Best: Interview with Dick Cavett

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Sep 30, 2012

I was bored one day searching YouTube for a couple of interesting classic interviews and I came across the most hilarious and entertaining Bette Davis interview I had ever seen. It is not entirely Precode - although she does go into early 1930's screen tests - but it is a must-watch for any Davis fa read more

Precode Double Take (or not): Katharine Hepburn

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Sep 27, 2012

I've been doing a little series on actresses both Precode and Post-code, mostly when I could think of nothing else to blog. I've looked at the ones whose careers have endured from early talkies until the Classic era and most, I have found, have either needed to or wanted to completely alter the read more

Marion and Clark in 'Polly of the Circus' (1932)

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Sep 19, 2012

Instead of finishing my Warren William series - which I should have done in August - I've decided to do a couple of random movie reviews rather then sticking to one actor or genre. Most of these will be ones that I have had in my movie collection for a while but haven't had the opportunity or inclin read more

1931: The Best Year of the WAMPAS

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Sep 19, 2012

Although, 1926 is often considered the best year of the WAMPAS Baby Stars in the silent era, with future stars, Mary Astor, Joan Crawford, Dolores Del Rio and Janet Gaynor chosen, it is clear that as the Precode era is concerned, 1931 is the WAMPAS standout.  But before I go into the year and t read more

Precode Documentary Awards

Lets Misbehave: A Tribute to Precode Hollywood Posted by Emma on Sep 17, 2012

As I found Precode movies from a documentary, they have been one of my first sources of information and, as you can imagine, I have watched heaps of them. There are not many that deal specifically with the era, but several touch on the topic of censorship when discussing film history as a whole. So, read more
