SASS MOUTH DAMES: Women who ruled pre-code Hollywood 1930-1934 with Megan McGurk

28 September @ 7:00 pm

SassMDLecture

Two remarkable things happened in Hollywood during the early sound period: censorship relaxed and studios believed pictures for women were profitable. Women starred in racy plots about the sexual double standard, sex work, abortion, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to make it in a man’s world. What always made life easier was the society of other women. Often forgotten today, women like Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, Kay Francis, and Marlene Dietrich ruled the studio system.

No booking required. All welcome on a first come, first served basis.
