Baby Face Directed by Alfred Green. Employees’ Entrance Directed by Roy Del Ruth.
Two surprisingly salacious “working girl” classics from the racy Pre-Code era. In the first, ambitious NYC bartender Barbara Stanwyck sleeps her way from the basement to the penthouse. The second tells of a ruthless department store manager who exploits his female employees (Loretta Young et al.) because jobs are hard to come by during the Depression. Preserved by the Library of Congress. (Each film: USA, 1933, b&w, 35mm, 75 min.)
