The White Slave Girl

Viggo Larsen, 1907, 8 min

Having responded to a newspaper advertisement, a young girl sets out to take up a position as a housekeeper. Not long after arriving, it transpires that she has fallen into the clutches of the white slave trade. The house is in fact a brothel, and its lecherous clients are queuing up to get a piece of the new girl. Her only hope of rescue is the carrier pigeon she has been given by her good friend.

The film is the earliest narrative film from Nordisk Films Kompagni. It was shot in 1906 and premiered the following year. The film lacks intertitles.
