There are a lot of good resources on the web for people who want to study or hang out with other Pre-Code Hollywood nerds like me. Here’s a list of places where you can find other fans and hang out:

  • Pre-Code Hollywood on Facebook — Usually a lot of rare pictures posted and a number of self promoters (which I won’t pretend not to be a part of), this is one of the liveliest communities I’ve found on the net.
  • Pre-Code Hollywood Forum on TCM — On the other hand, this one always surprises me when there’s a post not in the photo thread. However they do keep track of what’s showing up on TCM (of all networks) in terms of Pre-Code, so it may be of some use to you.

Good Classic Movie Blogs

There are some great sites that mostly deal in Pre-Code and classic film that I frequent as often as possible.

And if those don’t float your boat, here’s some good places for general Golden Age of Hollywood writing:

      I think your review of The Easiest Way needs a bit of updating. Laura Murdock freely gives her jewels back to Will Brockton because Jack Madison asks her to do so. Also, Laura tells Will she is leaving after the scene with her, Will and Jack. I thought Will would throw her out as well, however, he does not. Rather her asks her to stay on their original terms and he looked for her after she left based on Laura’s discussion with Nick in Nick’s front yard near the movie’s end.

      The Easiest Way was part of TCM’s Summer Under the Stars tribute to Constance Bennett. I watched the movie for the first time this week and was surprised as I researched all the Hays Office drama surrounding the film’s making.

      Love this website.

      Huge fan of Pre-Code films,
