This chapter covers the remarkable number of films Dvorak made in the year following her return to Warner Bros., such as Heat Lightning and Housewife, costarring Bette Davis. Included are her final films of the pre-Code era, which was winding down due to the enforcement of the Hays Code. This chapter not only chronicles Dvorak’s career at the time, it also reflects what life was like for may Warner Bros. contract players during the studio system era.

Keywords:   Warner Bros., studio system, pre-Code, Housewife, Bette Davis, Heat Lightning
