A social hygiene film produced in the the US, in 1919. Library and Archives Canada holds an incomplete copy with French/English intertitles with a re-release date of 1922.
This excerpt occurs about 2/3 of the way through the film. Is this an actual asylum? What other production options would have been available in 1919 in New York?
End of the Road was produced by the American Social Hygiene Association. Many details about the film fascinate but I am particularly intrigued by the two main female lead characters and the frank discussion of STDs, infidelity and promiscuity.
