Description by OLDIES.com:
An enticing trio of suave silver screen seducers lies at the heart of this fourth collection of pre-Code sensations whose subject matter would soon be forbidden by the infamous Production Code. William Powell, Kay Francis and David Manners prove that sophistication and sexiness once walked hand in hand -- ably abetted (and abedded!) by the likes of Joan Blondell, Loretta Young and George Brent. Powell headlines in Jewel Robbery and Lawyer Man, while his Jewel costar Francis works late with David Manners in Man Wanted (all three directed by cinema maestro William Dieterle), who in turn teaches innocent Loretta Young just why They Call It Sin. From the simply frank to the jaw-droppingly shocking, this forbidden foursome promises nights of delight.
This volume in the Warner Brothers archive collection travels back to the halcyon days of pre-Hays Code Hollywood, the era when onscreen morals were loose and free and generally anything could be seen sans censorship restrictions. It features four classics from that era: JEWEL ROBBERY (1932) and Lawyer Man (1933), each directed by William Dieterle and starring William Powell; MAN WANTED (1932), directed by Dieterle and starring Kay Francis, and THEY CALL IT SIN (1931), directed by Thornton Freeland and starring Loretta Young.
