THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE/CALL HER SAVAGE at the Roxie

ALL PROGRAMS ARE DOUBLE-FEATURES; SEE TWO GREAT FILMS FOR ONE LOW PRICE!
It's been nearly fifteen years since the last great Hollywood Pre-Code Festival at the Roxie Theater but on Friday, March 2 - and for a full solid week - the Roxie is proud to announce its exciting return to blatantly profane pre-code motion picture entertainment--FOURTEEN great FILMS…SEVEN sensational DOUBLE FEATURES--for thrill-seeking and sophisticated San Francisco Bay Area movie-goers!!

THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE
A spoiled rich girl is abducted by vicious bootleggers and held sexually captive by the gang's brutal leader. But her troubles are really only just beginning. Freely adapted from William Faulkner's novel "Sanctuary," this is one of the most legendary of all pre-code films, a jaw-dropping array of censor-baiting violence and sexual frankness. Unforgettable to say the least! Starring Miriam Hopkins, William Gargan, Jack LaRue, Florence Eldridge. Directed by Stephen Roberts. In B&W. HQ Digital. 70 mins. 1933.
WED at 6:30pm

CALL HER SAVAGE
Simply put, an astonishing and daring epic of rampant sexual energy, the likes of which have rarely been duplicated in the American cinema, before or since. A headstrong young woman attempts to defy the wicked and wild roots of her questionable parentage by embarking on a life of reckless debauchery! Time has done nothing to diminish the utter blasphemy of this red-hot pre-code classic! Starring Clara Bow, Gilbert Roland, Thelma Todd, Monroe Owsley. Directed by John Francis Dillon. In B&W. HQ Digital. 88 mins. 1932.
WED at 8:00pm

Dinner will be after the program, at about 9.45pm! We will decide as a group where to eat.

    I had a great evening, both at the movies and then at dinner later. The films were interesting relics of a different time, but in some ways also surprisingly ahead of our own time. Savage was somewhat more entertaining than Temple Drake, but both pictures had great archival value. I learned a lot about 'the code' from our post-movie discussion as well.

    Fun movies. The second one was funny at how bad/stiff the acting/dialogue were for the first 15 minutes. Great time chatting too.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
