The Yellow Ticket | 1930
A young Russian Jew, Marya Kalish, attempts to travel to St. Petersburg to visit her dying father. But she is unable to travel without a yellow ticket, something a single woman needs to travel alone -- but something that also suggests a woman may be a prostitute. Once Marya is in the city, a British reporter is outraged by her plight and writes about it. The head of the secret police aims to imprison the reporter and take Marya for himself.
