Sex in the Cinema - The Pre-Code Years (1929-1934)

Lou Sabini

Hollywood Movies in the 1920s depicted sex, violence, and alcohol and drug abuse with freewheeling abandon, but filmmaking freedom halted with the mysterious murder of director William Desmond Taylor, the drug death of writer-director-actor Wallace Reid, and the rape trials of Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle. Hollywood had to choose self-censorship or face the moral indignation of the law. They chose to manage movie madcaps themselves. Will H. Hays, President of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) from 1922 to 1945, prescribed the Production Code in 1930 and began strictly enforcing it in 1934. The Production Code spelled out a set of moral guidelines that were popularly known as the Hays Code. For decades, moviemaking was never the same. Rediscover 107 spicy films from the Pre-code era, induding Stolen Heaven (1931), The Night of June 13th (1932), Three on a Match (1932), Red-Headed Woman (1932), Call Her Savage (1932), This Reckless Age (1932), Young Bride (1932), Panama Flo (1932), and Baby Face (1933). Relive the fabled faces of these fiery films, such as Barbara Stanwyck, Norma Shearer, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis, Greta Garbo, James Cagney, Clark Gable, Edward G. Robinson, Wallace Beery, Carole Lombard, Frances Dee, Chester Morris, and Sylvia Sidney, as well as directors Frank Capra, Rouben Mamoulian, James Whale, William Welman, Michael Curtiz, William Wyler, and W. S. Van Dyke. Author Lou Sabini points his comprehensive spotlight on the often forgotten yet always fascinating films that dared depict violence, drugs, and sex with a sinful flair. 107 films profiled. Illustrated with 178 rare photographs and memorabilia from the worlds archives. Complete casts, credits, production history, and biographical profiles of the stars, director, writers, and cameramen.

While this site will explore practically every movie produced between 1930 and July 1934, that doesn’t mean that all of those films are Pre-Code movies. This list of Pre-Code films was culled from several books on the subject, and while it may not be exhaustive, at least serves as a good introduction. Early To Bed Tent | MORE BOOKS

"Sex in the Cinema: The 'Pre-Code' Years" is a lousy title for a pretty-good book. Film historian and professor Lou Sabini has compiled 100+ of the most interesting racy pre-Code movies from the beginning of the sound era through the enforcement of the Production Code in mid-1934. Many of the films do deal with sexual issues, but some push the envelope of what was acceptable in films in other
