Pre-Code Musicals

ID : 1230   
« back to classes page
For two semesters we have shown Pre-Code movies, sound films made during the short window of 1930 to mid-1934 before the industry decency code began to be strictly enforced. In that period, studio heads and directors felt little need to enforce moral standards while having much urgency to draw movie-goers to the box offices during the Depression. In our winter study group we will show four musicals that we have not studied before. These four films could be considered true classics in their own right. Pre-Code musicals were often choreographed by Busby Berkeley and featured elaborate stage shows and chorus girls in various stages of undress. Musicals include: 42nd Street, Footlight Parade, Love Me Tonight, and Love Parade. Join us for these toe-tapping extravaganzas.
