Intimate: Reitman 'Sister of the Road' (1937)
Let Box-Car Bertha show you the American underworld, where the homeless and rootless struggle to survive. An uncensored story that, unsurprisingly, was censored.
- In the publishing landscape of the mid 20th century, uncensored obviously means salaciousness but also a type of honesty that is tough and uncompromising.
- Bertha’s mother believes in ‘free love’ a phrase I thought originated in the 1960s but obviously dates from much earlier.
- The stories of hundreds of poor individuals appear here – all sorted by name, gender, occupation, ethnicity and ‘type’.
