The Yellow Ticket
A young Russian Jew, Marya Kalish (Elissa Landi), attempts to travel to St. Petersburg to visit her dying father. But she is unable to travel without a yellow ticket, something a single woman needs to travel alone -- but something that also suggests a woman may be a prostitute. Once Marya is in the city, a British reporter (Laurence Olivier) is outraged by her plight and writes about it. The head of the secret police (Lionel Barrymore) aims to imprison the reporter and take Marya for himself.
