In 1934, Hollywood was turned upside down by enforcement of the co-called "Hays Code" -- strict rules to govern the making of motion pictures developed in 1930 by Will H. Hays, president from 1922 to 1945 of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA). The Code would change the way movies were made for the next 34 years.
However, during the "pre-Code" period (1930-1934), censorship scarcely existed. Filmmakers were free to make the movies they wanted and which the public demanded. No subject was taboo including adultery, murder or pre-marital sex. Following is a non-exhaustive list of pre-Code films I hope to watch, presented in roughly chronological order. Ratings and links to reviews will appear in the NOTES.
