United States | 1913 | George Loane Tucker
David Drazin, silent film musician at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, will provide live piano accompaniment to Universal Pictures’ first feature-length film—a scandalous (and hugely popular) tale of white slavery within New York’s immigrant community. The film follows a poor young Swedish woman who is asked out by a “nice” man who then spikes her drink and transports her to a brothel. Can her older sister locate the kidnaper and thwart the crime before it is too late?
