WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN?
1916, 64 min, USA, Dir: Phillips Smalley, Lois Weber

A box office hit, this provocative look at birth control helped put Lois Weber on the map. Tyrone Power Sr. (father of the 1940s matinee idol) stars as a district attorney whose prosecution of a doctor reveals a busy abortion practice. Named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 1993. With music by Maud Nelissen. Courtesy of the Library of Congress.
