Photograph, taken from a high angle at the intersection of Southwest Broadway and Southwest Yamhill Street, showing women waiting in line for the film “Sins of Love” at the Rialto Theatre in Portland. The line extends from the theater entrance on Broadway around the block onto Yamhill and to the edge of the frame. The front of the theater’s marquee reads “FIRST RUN “SINS OF LOVE” WITH / DYNAMIC “SEX” LECTURE.” The side panel reads: “’SINS OF LOVE’ / STARTLING / SENSATIONAL.” The Oregon Journal published a story about “Sins of Love” on Sunday, May 7, 1933, the day before the film opened at the Rialto. The story, headlined “Operation Is Feature of Picture,” gave the following description of the film: “The mysteries of a women’s hospital, we are told, are revealed in ‘Sins of Love,’ coming Monday to the Rialto theatre screen. This German-made picture, filming in a women’s hospital in Zurich, Switzerland, is reported to present actual happenings, including a complete Caesarian operation, graphic but bloodless. The celebrated Dr. Lorens is shown at work.” The story also reported that a physician and four nurses attended each showing; that audiences would be separated, with matinee showings for women and evening showings for men; that no one under 16 would be admitted; and that women’s showings included a lecture by Mrs. Jardine McCree and men’s showings included a lecture by Professor Howard Goldin.
