What I Found On The Web This Week:
Merrily We Go To Hell
Loose women. Unscrupulous heels. Adulterous husbands. Unfaithful wives, Drug addicts, and Prostitutes. Pre-Code Hollywood had them all, with most sins going unpunished. And lucky for you and me ( Pre-Code Fanatics) Forbidden Hollywood Collection: Volume 7 has just escaped the Warner Vaults. Starring Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, Loretta Young and quintessential screen scoundrel Warren William in two of his best, Forbidden Hollywood: Volume Seven shines the spotlight on four of the era’s most scandalous sizzlers. The Hatchet Man (1932): A Tong executioner (Robinson) allows his wife (Young) to run off with a gangster only to learn she’s been sold into prostitution. Skyscraper Souls (1932): A financier (William) stops at nothing to gain control of a 100-story office building and a "naïve" Maureen O’Sullivan. Employees’ Entrance (1933): A tyrannical department store manager (William) chases after profits and Loretta Young. Ex-Lady (1933): An artist (Davis) who doesn’t believe in marriage reluctantly weds her lover (Gene Raymond) only to discover he’s seeing another woman. This is Hollywood without rules or censors and it’s lots of fun to watch. The Warner Store Has The Best Price.
