Notes
Content: Purity is a 1916 American silent drama film, directed by Rae Berger and starring Audrey Munson, an artist's model known for posing for several statues in New York City and the 1915 San Francisco Panama–Pacific International Exposition. The film's scenario was written by Clifford Howard, art direction was by Edward Langley, and choreography was by Geneva Driscoll. The film is notable for its nude scenes, which caused it to be banned and preached against in some towns. -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purity_(film), accessed 5 Nov 2020
