And here we have a limited roadshow engagement for some exploitation shocks and scares of a Higher order courtesy of bible-thumper extraordinaire, Estus W. Pirkle, and converted sleaze-merchant, Ron Ormand. Try a double-feature of this and the dynamic duo’s other Commie-bashing, convert-or-die screeds, If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? some time. It’s quite the trip.

Among the young female hellions being used and abused by the corrupt and sadistic reformatory system in our first feature are both Anne Francis and Rita “Rosita” Moreno, both making their screen debuts, whom crusading doctor Paul Henreid tries to reach with a carrot instead of a stick — well, make that a carrot instead of a fire-hose. What Sinister Secret Surrounds Their Fate? You won’t believe it until you see it! As for our second feature, both the title and the ad campaign betray the true nature of this tale of what lengths a newlywed will go to to avenge a husband who was murdered by a carjackers just after they leave the chapel.

Apparently, the Road to Ruin is a very slippery slope — as good girl Anne Dixon finds out, the hard way — which quickly rockets you down a path wrought with fast cars, booze and drugs, that ultimately dead-ends with an illegitimate teen pregnancy, and, horror of horrors, an abortion! And a lethally botched one, at that! Written and directed by Dorothy Davenport, a pioneer of sorts in the male dominated studio system, who apparently made it her life’s goal to warn others about the horrors of narcotics after her husband, writer/director Wallace Reid, died of an accidental overdose of morphine.
