Baby Face (1933)

“She had it and made it pay”. This salacious tag line caused some controversy in those days.

Forbidden Hollywood at its best. This Pre-Code film follows Barbara Stanwyck as she climbs her way to the top one floor at a time. From her father’s speakeasy to the final scene’s lavish penthouse apartment, the interiors mirrored her own transformation. If you want to find out more about Baby Face go here, but I’m only interested in showing you the intriguing and telling interior spaces.

    Patsy Ann, These are always so delightful. I watched old movies growing up because Mother liked them so much. Later, I liked their subtlety and elegance, so continued to watch. I always enjoy reading your captions (especial when they instruct me to ignore the dead body and concentrate on the wall treatment). Thank you for taking the time!
