Trivia

The film was condemned by the Legion of Decency for presenting material "unfit for the screen" - it was about preventing venereal disease among teenagers, which the Legion for some reason seemed to think wasn't a good idea - and was also released without a Production Code Authority seal of approval.

No greater Sin is a film that brings into the open the scourge of Syphilis!
1 November 2000 | by czar-10See all my reviews

No greater Sin is a film about the scourge of Syphilis. Although a regular run of the mill hygiene film, it was marketed as a exploitation film. No Greater Sin has all the trademarks of a regular hygiene film, the do's and dont's with lots of melodrama added in. The film takes place somewhere in a small community in the USA, nearby there is a army base. The films warns it's viewers about the dangers of diseased soldiers. Although made in 1941, a year when sex hygiene films were getting greater approval from the MPPDA, this one was not granted a seal. Too watch it now, one wonders why??
