Pre-Code.Com Site News for December 2017

Oh thank you sweet merciful god this year is almost over. In November, besides having my car need a new engine, I also got bit by a spider. I’m sick and miserable. And happy holidays to you!

I’ll be taking a few weeks off at the end of the month, but, thanks to Warner Archive, I will have a bunch of Loretta Young movies to finish out the year with. One fun note: this is the first month I’ve reviewed every single feature-length pre-Code that TCM is playing. No, really! Enjoy!

Pre-Code Movies on TCM in December

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.

TCM used to have a policy, official or not, of not showing the same film twice in one month. Things change, and not always for the better.
