The Last Night of the Barbary Coast (1913) was an early example of the exploitation film, showing what was purported to be the last night of the Barbary Coast red-light section of San Francisco. In reality, the Barbary Coast wasn't shut down until 1917.

The film, directed by Hal Mohr and Sol Lesser, is now considered a lost film.[1] Mohr, later an Academy Award winner, did the cinematography, and Lesser went on to become a Hollywood producer.
