Dir. Urban Gad (1910).
Danish silent screen diva Asta Nielsen is sensational in her first film. She plays a music teacher who, when seduced by a rough circus performer, skips out on her fiancé and elopes with her seducer and sinks into a life of degradation and crime. It contains an incredible erotic dance scene which was cut when the film was originally released in this country.
