12/19/06: Trapped by the Mormons

Salt Lake City, UT – Winifred Graham made headlines throughout the United States and England with warnings of young women - Mormon converts - leaving for Utah by the thousands. As part of her campaign, she published a novel in 1911, which was later made into the now-cult classic film "Trapped by the Mormons." The film has been released again on DVD, and Doug is joined by film historians for a conversation about the fears that drove early 20th century anti-Mormon sentiment and how those were reflected in cinema.
