Join Me in Washington DC for The Third Series of Saucy Pre-Code Films

Posted on September 26, 2015 at 4:17 pm

I am delighted to be joining Margaret Talbot for our third series of pre-code films at Washington DC’s Hill Center, starting October 4, 2015 at 4 pm, with the delectable “Madam Satan.” It is one of the nuttiest films ever made, with much of it taking place at a high-society party aboard a dirigible floating over Central Park. It’s worth seeing for the costumes alone, designed by one of the all-time Hollywood greats, Adrian, the man who created the iconic designs for “The Wizard of Oz,” “The Philadelphia Story,” and “The Women.”

The series is free of charge, and we have popcorn and prizes. Please come!

The rest of the series:

Night Nurse (1931) on Sunday, October 11 at 4pm

Murder at the Vanities (1934) on Sunday, October 18 at 4pm

Gabriel Over the White House (1933) on Sunday, October 25 at 4pm
