Pre-Code.Com Site News for September 2017
In some odd turn of events, our internet had to be reinstalled, and now I have free cable for a few months. So, yes, I’m somehow watching even more TCM than usual. That’s good in some ways– September has some excellent stuff showing. This includes a Greta Garbo day (yay!) and a pre-Code Jimmy Durante day (eh, I guess Meet the Baron is worth watching once).
The other low key announcement I have: I will apparently be at Cinecon in Los Angeles Friday morning and afternoon. I’m actually leaving on an extended trip to Iceland that evening, and my wife suggested we change our shuttle so we get into town early. I’m also going to try and talk her into checking out the newly reopened Angel’s Flight, but we’ll see how that goes.
Also: I finally got the second Wheeler & Woolsey collection in the mail– so guess what reviews will be in the pipeline? 🙂
Patreon Bonuses for September
Once again, thanks for all the help– it really makes me worry less about the surprising amount of money this site costs to maintain. I hope whoever watched enjoyed the YouTube poster tour I put up in August. (And sorry if I made you dizzy!) I’m still working on plans for September’s bonus, but I’m thinking it may be a bonus video about Cinecon. You’ll see as soon as I can, I promise!

Pre-Code Hollywood Movies on TCM in September
Please note: All times listed here are Eastern Standard. This schedule is subject to change (like if someone dies or the world ends– you know how it is). See the full listings for the month here. If you subscribe to TCM via cable, you can watch TCM online via the TCM Watch site. If you don’t have cable, check out Sling TV, where (Americans) can watch TCM online or on their Roku for only $25/month. Plus you get HGTV and Food Network. That’s how I got my wife to okay it.
