The Curse of Eve is a lost[1] 1917 silent film drama directed by Frank Beal and starring Enid Markey and Edward Coxen. It is also known under its alternate title Mother, I Need You.[2]


As with its proclamation in press material, the film was considered daring from the start because of its theme. The Garden of Eve sequence was shot in the Santa Cruz Islands southern California. Released on State Rights basis it was heavily re-edited or censored in some jurisdictions because Markey's character has an abortion.
