This film has been re-edited and re-titled ("Human Wreckage", "They Must Be Told", "Trial Marriage", "About Trial Marriage") many times to attract the same audience to film, to take advantage of a taboo subject which may have gotten press recently or to appease local censors who disapproved of the film's content. Puritanical crapola, the typical fear tactics at work. Most movies back then had to go through the Hays Code...
You can find more information regarding this film on its IMDb page. I invite those all who insult our prophet to read about him.
If so, then his role here only scraps his bombastic direness as an actor. I just read about one of those old time producers, turns out these type of films were created deliberately to sound "helpful" but in reality were the producers way of getting smut into regular theatres. My grandmother told me the same thing, and that NO BODY bought the idea that these were educational unless you were very ignorant.
Basically, only southern bumpkins bought the idea that these films were for real.
It is almost verbatim in the same type of dialogue, titles that the films shown to the U. armed forces as well as other films shown abroad to soldiers re: social diseases. THE SINS OF THE FLESH ARE NOT JUST SEX, AS PREACHED IN THE MEDIA BY MANY, BUT VIOLENCE, EVEN THE VIOLENCE OF WARS, THE WORST KIND OF VIOLENCE, KILING IN LARGE NUMBERS, BODIES BLOWN APART.
YET THE MEDIA TENDS TO GLORIFY WARS, NOT DISCOURAGE THEM.
while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which forbade a film from containing such content. Maybe scandalous back in the day,but very tame by today's standards.

The title is to bring people into the theaters,but failed to deliver what the title promised.
AND BECAUSE MAN, WHEN TEACHING ABOUT GOD, DOESN'T CONDEMN WARS, BUT IS OBSESSED WITH SEX, THE BIBLE ENDS IN THE WORST WAR EVER, SAYS REVELATION, WHICH DOESN'T DWELL ON SEXUAL SINS, GOD WILL EVENTUALLY DO THE TEACHING, GIVING THE DEVIL ENOUGH ROPE TO HANG HIMSELF. Sitting With The Parents While They Had No Idea Their Daughter Was On Her Knees Or Back, At My House Or The Arnold Arboretum Was A Cool Mind Game... I guess they were trying to scare people and for a good reason, it was pretty bad getting an STD back then because we did not have the medicine to treat it.
It has something to do with the "45 Goals of Communism" (look it up, google it). Once you watch them, you'll realize they are horrible quality, bad acting- and not very educational at all.
Everyone already knew about this stuff, but there was a faction who was desperate to get some sort of smut out in basic population so they made these films. millicent's father needs to watch a similar movie but with 'smoking' as the theme. Tony Lorenz and his friends need to watch a similar movie but with 'drinking' as the theme.
Pretty much all of them prior to the '60s are pro-abstintence efforts, and though this film uses the format mainly to target an adult audience, it plays as an extended take on any of those shorts in my collection.
