Audience Reviews for The Godless Girl
it's like reefer madness for atheists :P ok, to be fair it's very well made and entertaining, if terribly predictableMore
Cecil B. DeMille's last silent feature and a great one it is too. The film starts with a high-school battle between the two gangs, the Athiests, led by Judy and the Believers led by the handsome Bob. When the believers gate crash the Godless Society's meeting a full scale riot braeks out and during all the commotion a girl falls to her death.
Then we find ourselves in a brutal reform school. The two gang leaders and their neutral friend Bozo are sent there after the tragic accident. Both the girls and the boys are open to torture and punishment. Half way through the story Judy forgots her Atheist ways with the help of her new friend. Judy and Bob, who once were enemies fall in love and manage to escape, though they are not quite successful.
This is essential religious propaganda, but even though the girl was converted so easily it is still like nothing else I've seen. Defiantly recommended.
