See this film marathon: "Hot Saturday: Paramount pre-Code Marathon" @ the HFA

For one brief moment between the dawn of sound and the crackdown of the studio's moral watchdogs in 1934, Hollywood turned out some its sexiest, most mature, and effervescent movies. Half a dozen of the best can be seen at the Harvard Film Archive's "Hot Saturday: Paramount pre-Code Marathon," including classics like Mae West's She Done Him Wrong (1933) with her infamous come-on to Cary Grant, "Why don't you come up sometime and see me;" and Cecil B. DeMille's saucy Cleopatra (1934), in which Claudette Colbert, fresh from her asses' milk bath in The Sign of the Cross, plays the gauzily draped temptress. The Archive is in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Marathon starts at 9:15 pm on Saturday, September 1  | $12 | 617.495.4700 or
