Return with us now to those naughty days of yesteryear in this ninth volume of Forbidden Hollywood, containing a quartet of pre-Code wonders plus a special post-Code bonus film! Joan Blondell stars as a free-wheeling chorus girl who hooks up with the ultimate hick (Eric Linden) in Mervyn LeRoy’s Big City Blues (with a young Humphrey Bogart!). Richard Dix stars as one cool convict working the road crew for a corrupt warden in Rowland Brown’s Hell’s Highway. Bette Davis utters the immortal “I’d love to kiss you, but I just washed my hair” to Richard Barthelmess in Michael Curtiz’s The Cabin in the Cotton. Myrna Loy stars as a writer with extramarital designs in Harry Beaumont’s When Ladies Meet. Finally, pre-Code favorites Pat O’Brien and Ann Dvorak spice up the proceedings in the tale of a Second Avenue auctioneer (O’Brien) who gets played by a society grifter (Claire Dodd) in Robert Florey’s I Sell Anything.
