Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Exotic French film star Viviane Romance was the box-office insurance for Marked Girls. Many observers, however, felt that the film truly belonged to third-billed Renee St. Cyr. Romance plays Regine, a gangster's moll, who befriends Juliette (St, Cyr), an orphaned girl recently released from prison. Both of these "marked girls" have crosses to bear: Regine is the combination lover-patsy of a no-good gangster, while Juliette is being pushed into a wealthy marriage by a scheming female underworld leader. A hint of lesbianism managed to make it past the American censors, though many shots of Viviane Romance's cleavage were consigned to the cutting room floor. Director Francis De Carco adapted the screenplay from his own novel.
