Title: The Road To Ruin

Date: 1934
Type: Drama
Rating: 2 Stars 2/5
Colour: Black and White
Director: Wallace Reid and Melville Shyer

A naive young woman falls in with the wrong crowd and gets involved in alcohol, drugs, men and sex leading to her downfall.This is definately a pre-code film with semi naked girls, premarital sex, under age sex, abortions and striptease dice games. Today this is more interesting as a view into attitudes of the time than for the plot. Helen Foster is good as the innocent young woman being gradually led astray.
