WARNER ARCHIVE: Forbidden Hollywood Collection, Vol. 6

The Forbidden Hollywood line continues with the announced release of Forbidden Hollywood Collection, Vol. 6 from the Warner Archive Collection.

The 4-disc set includes: The Wet Parade (1932), Downstairs (1932), Mandalay (1934) and Massacre (1934).

This new set adds to the total of over 1,100 Warner Archive titles exclusively available for rent at ClassicFlix.com.

Audacious, controversial and shockingly frank, Forbidden Hollywood, Vol. 6 turns the spotlight on adultery, alcoholism, and prostitution, issues the Production Code would soon ban from the screen.

Starring the pre-Code era’s biggest stars, including John Gilbert, Richard Barthelmess, Myrna Loy, Kay Francis and Ann Dvorak, these four rarely seen gems are a provocative reflection of Hollywood's desire to push the limits in a more innocent time.

The Wet Parade (1932)
Demon whiskey brings ruin to two families in this all-star adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s impassioned novel.

Downstairs (1932)
A philandering chauffeur (John Gilbert) creates havoc in an upper-class household.

Mandalay (1934)
A Russian refugee (Francis) seeks revenge upon the ex-lover (Ricardo Cortez) who sold her into slavery.

Massacre (1934)
A college-educated Sioux (Barthelmess) wreaks vengeance upon the white officials who abused his family and cheated his people.
