Movie Info

A police raid on a roadhouse leads to a war on vice that results in the downfall of a vicious gangster and the sadistic madam who runs his prostitution ring in this sordid crime drama from director Elmer Clifton. While she may be beautiful on the outside, on the inside Belle Harris (Florence Dudley) is a hateful monster who relishes the opportunity to turn innocent young girls into money-grubbing prostitutes as she oversees the day-to-day duties at the Berrywood Roadhouse. Though Belle may be a cold corrupter, her physically abusive boss, Jim Murray (Wheeler Oakman), is even worse. As the police close in on Murray's lawless syndicate and his empire comes crumbling down, the truth comes out for all to see when the city reporters descend upon the hapless women he has so callously enslaved.

Audience Reviews for Slaves in Bondage

Slaves In Bondage is basically about prostitution, and it reminds me a lot of the film Escort Girls which had a similar premise, though both are similar in quality. While the film is incompetently made and cheesy, like Escort Girls, it has enough cheesy moments to keep it afloat. If you enjoy visiting forgotten curiosities, Slaves In Bondage is worth watching because of how bizarre it is.

Rather fascinating "B" classic from 1937 "exposing" a prostitution ring. There are some curious comic relief segments. The acting is better than most of these small expose films from the era. It moved along quickly and I always remained interested.
