Sex & Nudity

  • Five of the characters are involved one way or another in prostitution, but particular incidents are mentioned only in the briefest possible manner.

Violence & Gore

  • Most of the violent incidents occur before the film and are simply reported.
  • Threats are made using a knife, a broken bottle, and a gun.
  • A fight between two men breaks out, but it is broken up almost immediately.


  • There is significant use of coarse language (hell, damn, bastard, bejeezus, etc.) throughout the film, but it roles off the characters' tongues so naturally that one barely notices.
  • Racial and ethnic epithets are used frequently throughout but given little notice in keeping with the setting of a skid row bar in 1912.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Almost all the characters live in a bar where they go to bed drunk, get up drunk, and drink all day.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A suicide by jumping off a fire-escape is sudden enough to make the audience jump even though they're already expecting it..
