This German import about a high school girl getting pregnant was imported and re-cut, dubbed over, and given the full salacious roadshow treatment by American International. And though blessed with a fantastic trailer, by all accounts the film itself is a bit of a snoozer despite the live birthing sequence.

This farcical piece of nonsense about competing factions of birth-control-pill-swapping-adulterers and some naive young nincompoops boils down to a comedy of errors that’s high on the errors but a little low in the comedy quotient, meaning one should probably just leave the bottle on the shelf and let it expire where it sits.

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.
