Description Very odd special event - men's only and women's only screenings of the photoplay "Are You Fit to Marry?" - presented by the Moral Uplift League of America - "Based on Doctor Haiselden's refusal to operate on the famous Bollinger baby, and revealing to the world why this celebrated doctor allowed this deformed, defective infant to die." "Mothers - bring your daughters" "Notice: This film has been arranged in a most refined manner, but owing to the delicate subject it will be shown strictly to separate audiences, and no children will be admitted" "It would be a mistake for any woman to miss it"
