Women Go On Forever is almost as old-fashioned as its title. Silent-screen queen Clara Kimball Young makes a comeback attempt as Daisy Bowman, the salty but lovable proprietress of an all-female boarding house. Like all landladies from the dawn of recorded time, Daisy takes special interest in the tribulations of her tenants. Special attention is given to shopgirl Betty (Marion Nixon), the course of whose romance with cabdriver Eddie (Paul Page) never runs as smooth as it should. Inevitably, gangsters intrude upon Daisy's establishment, leading to the tying up of several loose plot strands. The film was based on a play by Edward H. Peple, which had served as a rare dramatic vehicle for comedienne Mary Boland.
