Taglines told all.

One didn't have to pay the admission price to this film in 1938 to know all about the plot, and if all of the posters were read before entering,there wasn't much chance of getting surprised i.e,; Sensational Expose of "Miracle Racket." Thrilling drama of show girl who turned "revivalist" for money gives inside stuff on phoneys. Fake evangelism exposed in a sensational story of Crime and Faith. She Lived A Scarlet Lie! Broadway show girl becomes revivalist..in a drama of night clubs and camp meetings that packs a mighty heart wallop. (and for those who couldn't guess the ending); She laughed at "suckers" who fell for her "line"...and fell herself for the oldest "line" of all. Monogram and PRC had better ideas regarding taglines on their posters; write something enticing that had nothing at all to do with the film being shown.
