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 Goldin.
