Film Notes

Nordisk released this film in Copenhagen in August 1910. It is a direct copy of an extremely successful film of the same title by Alfred Cohn for Fotorama. The original was premiered in April 1910 (and is not preserved).

Young Anne answers a job advertisement and travels to London to take up her new post. But it is a trap. She is imprisoned in a brothel. She almost kills her first client and escapes out of the window. What we see is not a drama about virtue threatened and saved, but an exciting adventure. This genre was to characterise the 1910s, thanks to Jasset, Feuillade and the serials, and would remain prolific for the next hundred years.
