William H. Turner in Traffic in Souls

Traffic in Souls

1913 NR

When her sister, Lorna (Ethel Grandin), is abducted and forced to work in a New York brothel, plucky Swedish immigrant Mary (Jane Gail) lands a job with the man behind the prostitution ring and gathers evidence against him. With the help of a high-tech recording gadget, she gets the goods on the crook and goes to the cops. This silent 1915 drama sought to expose the real-life seedy underworld of "white slavery" endured by many immigrant women.
