Though she was no spring chicken when she began making films, stage favorite Fannie Ward managed to convey the illusion of the flush of youth. In Each Pearl a Tear, Ward plays Diane Winton, the daughter of a downtrodden stockbroker's assistant. She is dearly coveted by her father's boss, heartless stockbroker Lorillard (Charles Clary). Diane becomes Lorillard's ward, whereupon he makes his lustful intentions quite clear. The villain is foiled by Diane and her true love, humble secretary John Clarke (Jack Dean), who turns out to be a Wall Street whiz. Each Pearl a Tear was co-written by Beatrice DeMille, the mother of Cecil B. DeMille.
