Woman Unafraid stars venerable character actress Lucille Gleason as Officer Winthrop, a no-nonsense but golden-hearted policewoman. Winthrop serves as den mother and confidante for wayward girls on parole, and also keeps a watchful eye on the dance halls in her district. With the help of a former gun moll Peggy (Lona Andre), our heroine gets the goods on Luciano-like gangster boss Big Bill Lewis (Jason Robards Sr.) "B"-picture habitues Skeets Gallagher and Warren Hymer make significant contributions, but it's Gleason's picture all the way. Produced by low-budget Goldsmith Pictures, A Woman Unafraid was helmed by house director William J. Cowan, who'd previously handled Monogram's not-uninteresting 1933 adaption of Oliver Twist.
