Description by OLDIES.com:
Bright and ambitious Anne Fane sees her publishing company job as a means to escape her dismal slum existence. She has an opportunity to become her boss' assistant - but then the boss pays an unexpected visit to her home and gets an eyeful of her shady brothers Elmer and Percy. Certain that the boss now thinks less of her, a distraught Anne attempts to drown herself, but is saved by Ronnie, a young newsman turned novelist. Anne and Ronnie fall in love and marry, but the weak Ronnie is soon drawn into a life of crime by Elmer and Percy. Anne resolves to stand by Ronnie through thick and thin - not to mention tragedy and tear gas!
Claire Windsor, elegant in the socialite and princess roles of her pre-talkie heyday, here plays a wrong-side-of-the-tracks gal anxious to make good. Forty years old at the time - just a few years younger than the actress playing her mother - she nevertheless delivers a powerful performance in the role of the pitiable Anne. The film's heart-tugging story was written by a newspaper reporter turned novelist and based on true-life incidents.

This one was a "problem picture" that were
so popular at the time. Claire played Ann Fane
a secretary to a high class publisher and she
has clawed her way to the top despite her
poverty filled background of which she is
ashamed. The boss happens to meet her "gone
wrong" brothers, things go from bad to worse
but a young reporter turned budding novelist
gives her a reason to live. He is weak though
and it isn't long before her two disreputable
brothers are back on the scene and easily
persuade him to join in their dodgy schemes!!
I won't spoil the ending but it is pretty
I was just interested to see what a film with
the title "Sister to Judas" was all about.
