Lists by georgebobolink
My absolute favorite films out of the ~8,000 ratings given.
The titles listed in Mark A. Vieira's Into the Dark.
The greatest actress of all time, and all her films.
Actress Genevieve Tobin was a popular commedianne in the early 1930s and worked steadily up to 1940. She supported stars including Barbara Stanwyck, Jimmy Stewart, Rosalind Russell, Joan Blondell, and even had a few starring roles herself.
Pre-Code Hollywood refers to the era in the American film industry between the introduction of sound in the late 1920s and the enforcement of the Motion Picture Production Code (Hays Code) censorship guidelines.
Although the Code was adopted in 1930, oversight was poor and it did not become effectively enforced until July 1, 1934. Before that date, movie content was restricted more by local laws, negotiations between the Studio Relations Committee and the major studios, and popular opinion than strict adherence to the Hays Code, which was often ignored by Hollywood filmmakers. Criteria for inclusion on this list is the direct mention of a film as a Pre-Code in a mainstream source, or its discussion in an article, essay, or book on Pre-Codes.
The films I've only given one star to on IMDB out of the ~5,500 I've rated. Movies I find offensive, empty, or stupid to an unimaginable degree.
