Editor's NoteJust because they're black and white, doesn't mean they're prim and proper. In FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. open up their archives to showcase films that are startling in their modern values and explicit sexuality. This third volume showcases the pre-Code films of William Wellman, whose film WINGS won the first Oscar for Best Picture. Mary Astor, Barbara Stanwyck, and James Cagney are among the stars who feature in OTHER MEN'S WOMEN, THE PURCHASE PRICE, FRISCO JENNY, MIDNIGHT MARY, HEROES FOR SALE, and WILD BOYS OF THE ROAD--works that run the gamut from Depression-era social dramas to anguished women's pictures. Also included here are two documentaries on the director, WILD BILL: HOLLYWOOD MAVERICK and PBS's THE MEN WHO MADE MOVIES (WILLIAM WELLMAN). Please see individual titles for complete synopsis information.
