1920s Cinema Playbill'The Road to Ruin' Lyric Theater Asbury Park Adult Inmorality NJ I had fun researching this one, for once!! Well, NOW we know where Reefer Madness got all of the hub-bub. This is not only the earliest cinema program/playbill I've found in dad's collection, it is, by far, the most unusual. Here we have some sort of morality piece that appears to be very racy for the period as "THIS PICTURE WILL POSITIVELY NOT BE SHOWN IN NEW YORK OR PENNSYLVANIA".It goes something like this: A young girl gets involved with a crowd that smokes marijuana, drinks and has sex. She winds up an alcoholic, pregnant drug addict and is forced to get an abortion. Movie Name: The Road to Ruin Stars: Helen Foster, Nell O'Day, Glen Boles Director: Dorothy Davenport, Melville Shyer. And advertising at its best for this program, as we watch the inevitable transformation of flapper girls into hard-drinking junkie sluts.
Therefore, this guide wisely includes. NO ONE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE ADMITTED DURING THE SHOWING OF THIS PICTURE. The piece includes its outer cover and inner booklet of around 50 pages that describes the movie in detail, with photos and key moments. Please see all photos, which should be self-explanatory.
Willis Kent presents HELEN FOSTER (star of the movie). With Virginia Roye and Grant Withers in A CLIFF BROUGHTON PRODUCTION.
Asbury Park Continuous Daily Noon to 11 p. The vibrant life story of a delinquent girl. A solemn warning to cheating fathers; an eloquent sermon to careless mothers. This picture all parents must see.Found the film on youtube! I'm surprised it hasn't already become a cult icon, like reefer madness... I guess the moral of the story is Stay in Church and stay as far away from NYC as possible ;. This item is in the category "Entertainment Memorabilia\Movie Memorabilia\Programs".
