Some pre-Code fun for a Sunday morning
"Getting hot" was the mantra for early 1930s Hollywood, that woolly period before the film industry's censorious Production Code was enforced with any consistency. Even within the confines of a particular Hollywood studio, the pre-Code movies could vary wildly. This Sunday at 11:30 a.m., at its new temporary home at the Gene Siskel Film Center, the Northwest Chicago Film Society presents a fetchingly paired duo from Paramount Pictures, buoyed by genuine comic personality — one sophisticated, the other screwy — the movies only occasionally recapture today.
