EASY VIRTUE is a 1928 black and white silent feature in which a woman flees to the South of France following her conviction for adultery and her subsequent divorce.

Violence

There is a brief scene of violence in which a man is shot and attempts to beat another man with a cane before collapsing to the ground. There is no sight of blood or injury detail.

Sex

In one scene a caption card shows a juror saying "An attractive wife of a drunkard husband, at home all day with another man who loved her - the evidence looks conclusive to me". The jury later find the woman guilty of 'misconduct' and her new mother-in-law refers to her, also by way of a caption card, as a woman of 'easy virtue'.

Smoking

There are scenes of smoking, although this reflects the age of the film.
