It has been a long time since I have added the post here…
On Feburary 8, William Wellman’s pre-code classic, “Night Nurse (1931)” was screened at EIGA 24-KU (Sendagaya, Tokyo) as a part of UNKNOWN HOLLYWOOD series. UNKNOWN HOLLYWOOD is the on-going movie screening events Ryo Tsunoda, a film critic and a writer, and I plan and produce, with the aim to introduce some of the overlooked Hollywood films (- 1952) to Japanese audience. For an each event, we set a theme to emphasize the cinema history, social significance, or cultural background. This time, the theme was “pre-code Hollywood”. After the screening, we invited Mr. Danny Reid of pre-code.com, who is the foremost researcher on the subject right now and (luckily for us!) currently resides in Tokyo, to give us a special presentation on Pre-Code Hollywood cinema. It was a superb study on cinema history, well-researched and expertly presented. Here is the video of his presentation. Enjoy!
