Synopsis by Hal Erickson

This second film version of Michael Morton's play The Yellow Ticket was among the final screen appearances of stage favorite Fannie Ward). The story is set in pre-Revolution Russia, where Jewess Anna Mirrel (Ward) bears the brunt of the Czar's oppression of her people. Desperately seeking a passport so that she may escape to America, Anna is callously issued a "yellow ticket," falsely designating her as a prostitute. She manages to overcome this government-imposed stigma with the aid of American journalist Julian Rolfe (Milton Sills). Yellow Ticket was memorably remade in 1931, with Elissa Landi and a very young Laurence Olivier in the leading roles.
