Starring in what the trade-papers would term her "first all-Negro picture," the always delightful Louise Beavers played the widowed mother of two very different sons. Henry (Reginald Fenderson, a wastrel who gets in trouble with underworld characters, and Bob (Edward Thompson, a studious young man who earns a law degree. When Henry finds himself falsely accused of a gang-related murder, Ma persuades brother Bob to defend him in court. Produced by the white-owned Million Dollar Productions, Life Goes On was directed by former cinematographer William L. Nolte, a Caucasian.
