Protect Your Daughter (1933)

** (out of 4)

Listen up all you mothers. Did you know that if your daughter was a virgin yet you suspected her of being a whore and told her about it, the virgin daughter would "put the game in the name" and become a whore. This is a tragic, hard hitting and emotionally devastating drama that packs a punch like no other film from this era. Nah, I'm just bullshitting but this is a decent exploitation film that actually has a decent story. There aren't any over the top laughs but it's still watchable.
