"Sadie Thompson" (1928) is an American silent film starring Gloria Swanson, who plays a prostitute seeking a new life on the island Tutuila. There she falls in love with a soldier, but a crusading missionary insists she return to San Francisco where she faces a prison sentence. The soldier, for his part, simply wants to take her to Australia when his tour of duty is up. The missionary is insistent and even arranges to have the prostitute deported.
