Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
LADIES THEY TALK ABOUT
Dir: Howard Bretherton, William Keighley
Barbara Stanwyck stars as Nan Taylor, a tough dame busted for bank robbery and sentenced to San Quentin. Barbara Stanwyck shares the screen with Lillian Roth, Preston Foster, and Lyle Talbot. The film features outstanding period music – a mixture of classic blues and jazz tunes. Ladies They Talk About is a 1933 pre-code women in prison film based upon a play by actress, writer, and real life San Quentin inmate, Dorothy Mackaye. "I'm not 'fraid of nobody in this jail. I'm doin' life and that's all I got."
Dir: Jack Bernhard
Paroled after serving time for her part in a jewel heist, Laura Mead (Belita) returns to the city looking to reclaim her life. Waiting in the shadows is her former boyfriend, detective Johnny Saxon (Preston Foster) - who may have railroaded her into the pen out of jealousy. When Laura turns up in Johnny’s apartment, is she looking to forgive … or make good on her threat to kill the man who sent her up? A clever, ambiguous twist on the typical femme fatale story, this hypnotic Poverty Row noir from director Jack Bernhard (DECOY) has been resurrected from obscurity in a new print.
