#CleanMovieMonth85 is Here!

 

My Post (2)

Today is the first day of July, so it is the beginning of #CleanMovieMonth85! This is the month which we have dedicated to Breen Era entertainment, so we have pledged to watch and review nothing but Code films during this time. That means we can only watch American movies released between July of 1934 and 1954 during this entire month. That won’t be difficult for us, since we love Code films!

This is a year of special anniversaries, since it has been ninety years since Martin Quigley’s idea presentation and eighty-five years since the formation of the PCA. We are especially celebrating the eighty-fifth anniversary of the PCA’s formation, since it marked the beginning of the twenty-year period of film decency which we call the Breen Era. Although it has not been eighty-five years of solid decency, due to the deterioration of the Code during the Shurlock Era (1955-1968), the years of Code-enforcement are still something about which to rejoice. In honor of this anniversary, we are calling this July #CleanMovieMonth85.

Visit the original announcement of #CleanMovieMonth85 to find out how you can join this celebration yourself. You can join anytime during July. It’s never too late to celebrate clean films! Any articles by other writers published as part of #CleanMovieMonth85 will be republished here, and links to the original posts will be included on a roster on this page.

Breening Thursdays is being suspended during July, since it is focused on un-Code films, and this month is just about Code movies. We will restart the series in August. On each of the four Thursdays in July, I will publish a Code Concepts article instead. In each of these articles, I will explain some concept of Code films. I will continue my other two weekly series, Film Fashion Fridays and 52 Code Films, throughout July. In addition, I will be posting daily articles this year. I am calling them Perfect Code Film Features. Every day, I will publish a one-paragraph article about a different perfect Code film which I recommend to my viewers as the film for the day. It will give those participating in #CleanMovieMonth85 some ideas on new movies to watch during the month.
