Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ruth Dunning plays a widow with two sons, one good, one bad. The bad one kills a pawnbroker, then begs Dunning to cover for him. She spends about three reels agonizing over the dilemma before she does the right thing. And Women Shall Weep is officially an Anglo-American co-production, but the "Britishness" of the whole affair dominates. Star Ruth Dunning was better known in Great Britain for her extensive work on television, often in similar tearjerkers.
