Created before the censorship Production Code (also knows as Hays Code) that was established in 1930 but not instituted till 1934 and was in effect for about 30 years (abolished in 1968). Technically, 'Pre-Code' describe films made between March 1930, when the Production Code was adopted, and July 1934, when it was amended and enforced. This is called the 'Pre-Code Era'. The Code, once enforced, disallowed profanity, excessive violence, illegal drugs, risqué sexual elements (pre-marital sex), but that is not to say that all films made during the Pre-Code era had shocking or surprisingly adult content... many did as the it was self-governing without censorship. Fans who indulge are treated a forthrightness with realistic plots and scenes that would be, eventually, clouded for the decades following. We've posted the Blu-rays and a selection - but not all DVDs and DVD boxsets, posters and book recommendations!
