Of Human Blondage

In the market a blonde's being sold
Such a Bargain! Bring bonds, cash or gold
She makes her debut
Half-naked to view
She should put something on or catch cold.

June Lang (credited as June Vlasek) is offered on the slave trading block in Chandu the Magician (William Cameron Menzies; 1932). They don't call it pre-Code for nothing. Title by mostly human David Cairns.
