Celebrating Warren William in Employees’ Entrance (1933) for the “My Favorite Classic Movie” blogathon on “National Classic Movie Day,” May 16, 2015.
A pre-Code entry released so late into the period that it was boycotted and even banned. Loretta Young plays another customer’s girl in Born to Be Bad, co-starring Cary Grant and Jackie Kelk. One of fewer than two dozen 20th Century Pictures entries before they merged with Fox Films.
She Had to Say Yes is a pre-Code film so outrageous that it’s bound to bother men and women alike. An expose on the life of the “customer’s girl,” the Depression era’s version of a high class call girl in business circles. Starring Loretta Young, who manages to be pawed by Regis Toomey, Lyle Talbot, and Hugh Herbert, all in the same movie.
A look at romance set in the world of politics in RKO’s The Farmer’s Daughter (1947) featuring Loretta Young in her Oscar winning performance. Also starring Joseph Cotten, Ethel Barrymore and Charles Bickford, directed by H.C. Potter.
