The Half-Way Girl
The Half-Way Girl is a 1925 American silent drama film directed by John Francis Dillon that was filmed around the Jersey Shore.
Doris Kenyon plays Poppy La Rue, an actress who winds up stranded in Singapore when her theatrical troupe goes bust. She winds up in the red-light district where she works as a "hostess" (generally a silent film era euphemism for prostitute), where she meets Philip Douglas, a down-at-the-heels Brit (Lloyd Hughes).
