Complicated Women: Sex and Power in Pre-Code Hollywood
Then, in July , the draconian Production Code became the law in Hollywood and these modern women of the screen were banished, not to be seen again until the code was repealed three decades later. A thorough survey and a tribute to these films, Complicated Women reveals how this was the true Golden Age of women's films.
An overdue tribute to the myriad of strong and independent women film stars of pre-Code Hollywood LaSalle provides a detailed summary of an important five-year period in Hollywood history So, this guy isn't a great writer but this book provides lots of interesting details about some obscure films I'll probably never get a chance to see. Nick LaSalle, is, like me, obsessed with Norma Shearer and her crossed eyes.
Depictions of homosexuality and interracial relationships were also scrubbed from Hollywood when the Code was enforced. Thank you! I added references to LaSalle to properly give him credit for the documentary and the research.
