VICE RACKET, THE (GAMBLING WITH SOULS) (1936)
Vintage original 22 x 22″ (56 x 55 cm.) jumbo window card, USA. Martha Chapin, Wheeler Oakman, Bryant Washburn, dir: Elmer Clifton; Jay-Dee-Kay Productions.
Exploitation film by the producers of the more famous Reefer Madness and Marijuana the same year. In fact, the same sets were used for all three films. Though in the guise of an “educational” film, this time about a woman’s desire and use of gambling to acquire the finer things in life and the path that leads her on, it was truly more about the exploitative story of her path to the shame of selling herself.
This poster with the alternate title states that it is a road show attractions of presenters Williams and Dezel and the poster campaign is definitely different from that for Gambling with Souls. Poster has been cleaned and smoothed and a few tears at the edges, including one near the bottom right side have been professionally addressed. Most likely the top blank portion has been removed. VERY GOOD.
