Special Announcement: Presenting Classic Movie Hub's New Pre-Code Columnist
July 18, 2017
I am very pleased to announce that I've signed on as a new pre-Code Hollywood columnist over at Classic Movie Hub! If you're not familiar with the site, be sure to check it out. CMH is basically a one-stop shop for all things classic Hollywood - articles on movies and stars, trivia, giveaways, upcoming events, interviews and more - you name it, they've probably got it.
And what better way to set sail on my new endeavor than with a piece on The Sin Ship (1931)? (Seriously, is that a great pre-Code title or what?) Click HERE to read my debut article!
I'll be writing on a variety of pre-Code topics, covering different films (trying to focus on lesser-known entries, but I'll likely include some well-known ones too), talent, and censorship drama. And naturally, I'll throw historical research into the mix as often as possible; digging in the Production Code Administration (PCA) files housed at the Academy's Margaret Herrick Library is one of my favorite pasttimes. That said, my aim is to keep these articles light and fun, yet informative. We'll see how well I do! I'll try to post a link to each piece here (they should be published monthly), and I'll definitely share them on my Twitter and Facebook pages. Also check out CMH on Twitter and Facebook as well.
I'm thrilled to be taking on this venture for such a prominent online authority, and I look forward to connecting with CMH's vast community. I believe CHM will be debuting other new columns as well, so be on the lookout for those, too. And of course, a big thank you to everyone who made this possible!
Now I gotta get started on my next entry...
