Cult Chops (September) – Pre Code Hollywood

by Elwood Jones · September 10, 2016 · Chops and Scores · No Comments


For September we are heading back to the early days of cinema where during a brief period between the introduction of the first sound pictures in 1929 to the enforcement of the “Motion Picture Production Code” in 1934 there existed an era known as Pre-Code Hollywood. A wild time for cinema as films were produced including profanity, drug use, prostitution, infidelity and abortion, while it also produced films featuring heroic criminal figures and strong female characters in what would be one of the wildest, yet still strangely overlooked era in cinema history.

How to get involved

All you have to do is submit any of the following

  • Reviews
  • Articles
  • Essays
  • Podcast episodes

Really anything relating to the theme of the month can be submitted either via e-mail – [email protected] or on the LAMB forums with all submissions featured in a round at up at the end of each month. The hope being that LAMB’s already writing about these genres will get alittle more exposure while perhaps tempting others to wander away from the path of mainstream cinema and maybe check out some films they might not have otherwise watched.

Submission Deadline: 7th October

Round up to be posted: 8th October
