Is Your Daughter Safe? #

Released 6/5/1927

Description: The movie was created as a compilation of footage that was, in some cases, nearly fifteen years old, and included stock footage such as medical reels containing footage of venereal diseases and movies depicting white slavery. The primary plot was a cautionary tale about a young woman's adventure into prostitution and white slavery, but, like the another movies of the era, the plot was secondary to the sexual content. Many of the presentations were introduced at the front door, with live nude girls in glass booths at the entrances. Inside, the movies were usually accompanied by a medical slideshow about venereal illness and a lecture from an alleged sexual education specialist. This was a typical presentation template for the time, and set an example for soon exploiters. (Wikipedia)

The Whole Wide World Reviews:

I found this film while searching through a reduced DVD bin. But once I saw Vincent D'onofrio in the lead I knew I would not be disappointed; and of course I wasn't.He is one of the most talented and underrated actors gracing the indie screen today. Although he has had few large budget roles (MIB-The Cell to name a couple) he is a hero actor and does extremely well with hero driven films. I'd never heard of Robert E. Howard until I watched the WWW and I couldn't think of a better person to introduce him to me than Mr. D'onofrio. The method he portrays his tortured existence and his need for companionship and acceptance was done with such brilliance and conviction, you can really appreciate how much Bob Howard lived inside his own head and yet longed to be part of the globe around him.Renee Zellweger also turned in a notable performance as Novaline Price. She skillfully portrayed the love, hope and irritation she often had for Bob. Together D'onofrio and Zellwegger not only showed the pain of unrequited love, but the richness of friendship.I suggest this movie to anyone looking for nice acting, unbelievable cinematography and a delicious score. Curl up, turn the lights down, and enjoy. I promise the characters will stay with you long after the final credits.


This is an simple vote. A real, well acted old time storyline of star crossed loves. Cutting edge acting by Vincent D'Onofrio as Robert and his woman Rene Z. An emotional, tender, and heartbreaking story. Both actors pull out your emotions and place them through the wringer. Beautifully filmed and the melody fits the mood. Vincent was perfect. His intense face, which he uses as an emotional barometer, captures and relays the tortures Robert E Howard experienced. It is how movies used to be - memorable. This was Rene Z's first serious work, and I will tell she has never come close again in touch the emotional triggers although she is large box office. Her thanks to Vincent on receiving her first Academy awards speaks volumes " Thank you Vincent for teaching me how to work." They were a lovely squad together with a unique bond both actors created together. I did not wish to leave the characters and return to reality. In closing, this "little movie" budget wise and distribution wise, is now a far greater achievement then it's modest budget should foresee. This movie could have been dubbed as one of the greats instead of shelved and forgotten.


Before I saw this film a several years ago, I had never heard of "Robert E Howard". Since then, I've educated myself on who Robert E Howard was...and who Novalynn was. He was extraordinary and she drank him up. It's wonderful that someone took her ebook and made a film out of the story. Even more wonderful is how perfectly it was all orchestrated. The characters were wonderful (Especially Vincent DiOnofrio). The script was great, the filmwork was beautiful, the timing was right on. I will never grow tired of this movie. And I'll continue to turn it onto whoever comes over to my house and hasn't seen it yet. The Entire Wide Globe is a masterpiece!
