Universal Pre-Code Hollywood Collection

Universal Pre-Code Hollywood Collection to be released April 2009. That's right, Universal. Nice to see they are opening their vaults and releasing some Paramount productions. Read more about the upcoming release at:

DVD Times

The six disc set will include a documentary along with the following films:

The Cheat (1931) - A compulsive gambler (Tallulah Bankhead) will do anything to pay off her debt - including turning to a wealthy businessman behind her husband’s back. 

Merrily We Go to Hell (1932) - An abusive alcoholic (Fredric March) reunites with a woman from his past and drives his wife (Sylvia Sidney) to drastic measures. 

Hot Saturday (1932) - Scandal erupts after a young woman (Nancy Carroll) innocently spends the night with a notorious playboy (Cary Grant) and neglects to tell her fiancé (Randolph Scott). 

Torch Singer (1933) - After giving up her illegitimate child for adoption, a notorious nightclub singer (Claudette Colbert) attempts to find her daughter through a children’s radio show. 

Murder at the Vanities (1934) - While sexy musical revue “The Vanities” captivates an audience on its opening night, a murder investigation takes place backstage. 

Search for Beauty (1934) - Olympic swimming champions (Buster Crabbe and Ida Lupino) are tricked into endorsing a racy magazine - and much worse.

Available on Amazon for 36.99 with  free Super Saver shipping. Pretty good price for six films and a documentary.
