Trapped by the Mormons
Unscrupulous criminals in the Manchester suburbs abuse the Mormon faith to lure young women away from their families.
Drama 1922 92 mins Silent
For anyone suspicious of the Mormon faith, this film would have elicited their worst fears. Mormons are portrayed here in the darkest light, as remorseless polygamists and murderers, imprisoning and converting innocent young women against their will. While they appear to make good villains- especially chief recruiter Isoldi Keene, in his predatory black cloak - there is a fair amount of scare-mongering and misconception about the Church of Latter-Day Saints. This silent film may well have reflected the general sentiment of British people towards US-imported Mormonism at the time.
