This film is called Den hvide Slavehandel (The White Slave Trade) not Den hvide Slavinde (The White Slave-girl). The latter was an eight-minute 1907 short made by Nordisk and directed by and starring Viggo Larsen. All three films have very much the same plot because all three were based on the same 1905 novel by Elisabeth Schøyen (called Den hvide Slavinde but repubished with the title Den hvide Slavehandel in 1914).
Den hvide Slavehandel, a twenty/thirty minute film (not forty-five minutes), was indeed first filmed by Fotorama and directed by Alfred Cohn while Nordisk brought out this scene-by-scene remake just four months later although, unjustly perhaps, it seems to have been the Nordisk version that had the greater success. A 45-minute sequel, Den hvide slavehandels sidste offer (In the Hands of Impostors) was made in 1911, also directed by Blom.
As far as I can see, company details and casts are currently correct on IMDb for all three films.
