Do you love old black and white movies? Especially the ones before 1934? Well, Danny at Pre-Code.com and Karen at Shadows and Satin are hosting a blogathon to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Production Code. If you’d like to join in visit this page. I’ve signed up to write about Kay Francis.
I’ve written about Pre-Code Hollywood before. If you’re a hardcore TCM viewer, then you already know what Pre-Code films are. If you don’t know, follow the link and read. If you’re already a fan, bookmark Pre-Code.com or Shadows and Satin and come back at the end of the month.
As a kid growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, I loved staying up late watching the all-night movies on television. There’s something about sitting in a darkened room, when everyone else is asleep, escaping into the past by the flicker of black and white movies.

Hi, James — you’re all set for March 31st! We look forward to reading your post on the fabulous Miss Francis. Welcome aboard!
Did all of us sneak downstairs in the dark of night to watch Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney movies with the sound turned so low our noses had to touch the screen in order to avoid detection. Go boomers.
I never hid my fondness for old movies. I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. Whatever I like, I’m proud to admit. I still watch Andy Hardy movies now and then.
