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!

Thanks. That should keep us occupied.

I’ve always wanted to see What Price Hollywood? so I’m glad to see it’s been added to the September schedule (30th). Also, I’m guessing the 18th is the Garbo day you had mentioned in the intro – YAY!
