Returning for a fifth year is my annual 30 Days of Pre-Codes post-a-day marathon! However, this year will be a little bit different from past years. In the past, I’ve always done straightforward reviews of the movies. But after all these years, I’ve reached a point where my list of pre-codes I haven’t written about (and that I have access to) was looking really lackluster. Since I don’t want to spend a month writing reviews that are basically just, “Meh, it was OK,” and I don’t think you want to read that either, I’ve decided to take a new approach.
This year, I’ll be looking at some of my favorite pre-codes; the ones I’d say are essential pre-codes. Many (but not all) of the movies I’ll be writing about are ones I’ve written about before, but I’m not going to just be re-posting old content. It will be new content that focuses more on what makes these movies so definitively pre-code and why I consider them to be essentials. I hesitate to call it a countdown because my posts will only have a vague order to them, but I will say that the whole month will gradually be building up to the most scandalous ones of the bunch.
So get ready for yet another wild ride of innuendo, grit, gangsters, and chorus girls because every movie I’ll be writing about in November offers something that had the censors seriously clutching their pearls.
