Directed by Norton S. Parker
1928    41m    Passed
A controversial, low-budget drama about the life of a young teenage girl who goes down the "road to ruin." Sally is a 16-year-old New York City teen who, neglected by her parents, takes up smoking and drinking, engages in affairs with a series of older men, gets arrested by the police during a strip poker game, discovers after she's sent home that she is pregnant, and gets an illegal abortion. The words "The Wages of Sin is Death" appear inexpliably over her bed in fire.
