Summary

In the early 1930's, before Hollywood began enforcing a self-imposed Production Code, many films allowed for extraordinary frankness including nudity, adultery and prostitution. In this restored and remastered three-movie collection, three daring young actresses are featured in racy, riveting star vehicles. Jean Harlow is a red-headed secretary who hooks the company's married boss, while carrying on with chauffeur Charles Boyer. A young soldier is forced to give up Mae Clarke when his well-to-do family learns she's a prostitute, in Waterloo Bridge. Finally baby-faced Barbara Stanwyck sleeps her way up the corporate ladder in a New York bank, not caring who gets hurt.

Notes

Collective title from container.

Originally released as motion pictures between 1931-1933.

Container mistakenly identifies the contents of disc 1 as Baby face and disc 2 as Red-headed woman and Waterloo Bridge. The actual content of the discs is reversed.

Special features: new introduction by Robert Osborne ; Baby Face theatrical trailer.
