Damaged Lives DVD
A true rarity, and a film the American public almost didn't see. "Damaged Lives" (1933) is about the consequences of venereal disease, a subject that was rarely discussed in the 1930s. Censors would not allow it to be shown in most of the U.S. until 1937,when it was renamed "The Shocking Truth" and a 29 minute lecture on the dangers of VD was added to the end of the film. Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer and starring Diane Sinclair, Lyman Williams, Marceline Day and Jason Robards Sr.
