Damaged Lives | USA | 1933 | DCP | 61 min. Director: Edgar G. Ulmer
A young shipping tycoon contracts an infectious disease and unknowingly transmits it to his wife. Sponsored by the Canadian Social Health Council, this feature about venereal disease was Ulmer's first American film as director after starting his career in Germany. Intended as sexual education, not exploitation, Damaged Lives concentrates optimistically on hope provided by knowledge and discretion.
