Forbidden Hollywood Collection, Vol. 1
First, a Canadian soldier is forced to give up the woman he loves when his well-to-do family learns she's a prostitute, in director James Whale's heartbreaking drama "Waterloo Bridge" (1931). Mae Clarke, Douglass Montgomery and a young Bette Davis star. Then, "Red-Headed Woman" (1932) is a saucy, pre-Production Code drama starring Jean Harlow as a golddigging secretary who hooks the company's married boss, while carrying on with chauffeur Charles Boyer. With Lewis Stone, Chester Morris. Finally, the daring-for-its-time romantic drama "Baby Face" (1933) (available here in both the prerelease version and the theatrical version) stars Barbara Stanwyck as an amoral, greedy gal who sleeps her way up the corporate ladder in a New York bank, not caring who gets hurt. George Brent, Donald Cook, Henry Kolker, and a young John Wayne co-star as some of Stanwyck's conquests. 3 3/4 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; theatrical trailer. Two-disc set.
