Description by OLDIES.com:
After the dawn of sound and before the Production Code, Hollywood ran wild and free. Fearlessly and frankly tackling subjects and scenes that would quickly become forbidden to a generation of filmmakers, these seldom-seen pre-Code wonders are both revelatory and sin-sational. This fifth volume takes a walk on the wild side with a foursome that sees Jimmy Cagney (Hard to Handle, 1933), Warren William (The Mind Reader, 1933), Barbara Stanwyck (Ladies They Talk About, 1933) and Joan Blondell (Miss Pinkerton, 1932) in tales of swindlers, crooks and crimebusters.
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. Four pre-code classics appear in this box set: HARD TO HANDLE (1933) starring James Cagney and directed by Mervyn LeRoy; LADIES THEY TALK ABOUT (1933), starring Cagney and co-directed by William Keighley and Howard P. Bretherton; THE MIND READER (1933) directed by Roy del Ruth and starring William Warren; and MISS PINKERTON, starring Joan Blondell and directed by Lloyd Bacon.
