It has been a long time since I have added the post here...

On Feburary 8, William Wellman's pre-code classic, "Night Nurse (1931)" was screened at EIGA 24-KU (Sendagaya, Tokyo) as a part of UNKNOWN HOLLYWOOD series. UNKNOWN HOLLYWOOD is the on-going movie screening events Ryo Tsunoda, a film critic and a writer, and I plan and produce, with the aim to introduce some of the overlooked Hollywood films (- 1952) to Japanese audience. For an each event, we set a theme to emphasize the cinema history, social significance, or cultural background. This time, the theme was "pre-code Hollywood". After the screening, we invited Mr. Danny Reid of, who is the foremost researcher on the subject right now and (luckily for us!) currently resides in Tokyo, to give us a special presentation on Pre-Code Hollywood cinema. It was a superb study on cinema history, well-researched and expertly presented. Here is the video of his presentation. Enjoy!
