Flick of the Week: Sex Madness (1938)

  • Early exploitation film dramatizing the dangers of casual sex and syphilis, the latter of which was rampant in the US at the time.
  • Also known as Human Wreckage or They Must Be Told or Human Wreckage: They Must Be Told.
  • Displayed remains of outlaw Elmer McCurdy (1880-1911) before they were acquired by another exploiteer.
  • Maybe this film coined the phrase “Protect your daughters!”
