Abstract:

Easy virtue: Laurita Finton is accused by her husband of being in love with an artist. There is a trial, but the artist, who has been rejected by the girl, kills himself. Laurita's world is destroyed so she decides to leave, changing her identity and starting a new life. She falls in love with a rich young man, John Whittaker, but his family doesn't like Laurita, a girl with an "easy virtue". John's mother finds out about the shadows in Laurita's past and tells everything to her son.

Blackmail: The first thriller in sound with the ground-breaking "knife" scene. Quarreling with her detective boyfriend, Alice White accepts the offer of excort from a handsome stranger. Allowing herself to be coaxed into his apartment, she resists his advances, and in a violent struggle, stabs him with a knife. But in her haste to leave the scene of the crime passionelle, she drops a glove. And this vital clue to her identity falls into the hands of a blackmailer who viciously starts turning the screw.
