1928 version[edit]

Unwed Mothers" in 1928. It was a "seven reel" film according to press releases and reviews. It "made Its mark in the world of motion pictures" when, during a 3 week run in Buffalo, NY, "for the first time in the history of motion pictures the police reserves had to be called out to keep the crowds in check." It was touted as having an "all star cast" of "Frank Sheridan, Zena Keefe, James Morrison, Katherlne Kaelred, Arthur Donaldson, Rubye DeRemer, Marie Shotwell and Violet Homer" In a press release it was noted that "it is being shown for men only over 16 years of age. Special slides and a lecture are given to men audiences beside the seven reel film. Every man should attend the picture and see the truth about a subject that is not ordinarily discussed. This picture shows the recklessness of modern youth as a result of ignorance of the vital facts of life." It also seems to have included and/or expanded on "Enlighten Thy Daughter" (1917) - "The former title, "Enlighten Thy Daughter," is the keynote of the production, and the theme on which it is based, is worked out in a manner which carries to every parent who sees It a never-to-be-forgotten lesson."
