The Devil's Disciple (1925) [Lost Film]

An Oscar Micheaux film. Aileen Kennibrew, a charming and beautiful girl calls on one Richard Ellis, a motion picture producer, who is impressed by her modesty, refined personality and striking carriage and is persuaded to "try" her out in the movies. She makes good, and altho' elevated after a few pictures to stardom, becomes obsessed with an overwhelming desire to go on the stage. Finally securing a part with a dramatic stock company, she fall in love with a character man, who, unknown to her, is of degenerate character. Giving him all her love, however, she sets out to reform him with the usual result—but that's the story!

A motion picture that every young girl ought to see, as it, among other things, points out with great force and conviction, the error o vain love and shows how easily any attractive girl may be ruined by failure to exercises normal restraint.
