Forbidden Hollywood Vol.3!

Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time will know how much I LOVE the movies that were made during the glorious "pre-code" era and Warner Brothers has done it again by releasing another great set of films in their "Forbidden Hollywood" DVD series, this time focusing on the director William Wellman. Gary Tooze over at the FAN-TAS-TIC DVD Beaver website has an early preivew of the set and it looks terrific!!

The films included are
Other Men's Women (1931), The Purchase Price (1932), Frisco Jenny (1933), Midnight Mary (1933), Heroes for Sale (1933), and Wild Boys of the Road ( 1933) as well as period shorts and cartoons. Amazon has the release date as March 24th and mine in already in pre-order (with a good discount, too)! These are screen caps from the films (thank you Gary!):
