A Throbbing Drama of Shackled Youth!

"Here is a page from the Book of Life...the characters are real people who live deep in the heart of Thunderhead Mountain. In dramatizing life among these "back yonder" folk we aim neither to ridicule nor to defend their mode of living...and if our story will help to abolish child marriages it will have served its purpose."
- on screen preface to "Child Bride"

The most shocking and licentious exploitation film of the 1930s, "Child Bride" is an educational illustration of the illicit ills of child marriage. Down in Appalachia, on Thunderhead Mountain, inbred, uneducated girls, who have yet to ripen into womanhood, are swapped among coarse middle-aged men folk who wed and love their females between the ages of ten and fifteen. After about ten anguishing years of cooking, cleaning, childbearing and gratifying their husbands, these child brides are traditionally beaten to death and a newer, younger bride is taken. As a result of this vicious cycle, the people of Appalachia live in a sequestered world, out of step with modern values and customs.

"Child Bride" follows the sad story of Jennie Colton (Shirley Miles), forced into the grubby arms of Jake Bolby (Warner Richmond). Already on his second child bride, Jake is a hateful, heartless hillbilly who promises a grim life for sweet Jennie. Jennie's teenage boyfriend, Freddie Nutty (Bob Bollinger) is heartbroken that a much older man had robbed him of the girl he has been saving himself for. Freddie rallies with dwarf sidekick Angelo (Don Barrett, a pseudonym for iconic "little person" Angelo Rossitto) to stop Jennie from becoming Jake's child bride.

Presented here, uncut and unexpurgated is "Child Bride" in all its sleazy glory.

**Please be advised that while a great effort is made in restoring these films in their entirety, portions which have been destroyed beyond repair may have been edited out.**
