Starring Louise Glaum
April 10, 1920
In spite of the sensational title, the picture, as a whole, is not offensive even though it treats on a sex problem. The reason why it fails to offend is because the sex situations are only secondary, the chief purpose of the play being to show that the heroine, a woman leading a high life, reaped what she sowed. She steals a husband, in spite of the pleadings of a good wife; but when she marries, another woman now steals her husband. And she feels the loss deeply because she is in love with him.
The first reel shows a midnight party with men and women in an intoxicated condition, and acting like fools. In that part, it will be necessary for you to eliminate the scene showing a man, with the leopard woman riding on his back; also the one showing another man putting a garter on the foot of a woman.
The picture has been produced most lavishly.
While "Sex" is not a picture for Y.M.C.A.'s or for theaters catering to the strictly religious element, it will entertain people who have a broader view of life.
