pre-code film list?

Unread post by jasta » Sun May 20, 2018 5:21 am

Is there a book, list, or database of pre-code films that includes some information on each film?

It certainly doesn't list every pre-code film, but Lou Sabini's Sex in the Cinema has profiles of many of them.

Mark Vieira's 1999 in-depth book on Pre-Code, "Sin in Soft Focus," goes into great detail on the period, explaining how it started, players in the PCA, and films. It might have a list in it.

"Warner Brothers Presents: The Most Exciting Years--From the Jazz Singer to White Heat" (Hardcover – June 1, 1971)
has in Appendix II a year-by-year listing of all the Warner Bros. movies from 1930 to 1949. There is a capsule summary of each movie, which includes the director and main stars.
