~The Woman in Room 13~
1920
~Plot Synopsis~
Pauline Frederick stars in this mediocre melodrama, based on the play by Max Marcin and Samuel
Shipman. Laura (Frederick) is married to John Bruce, a corrupt police commissioner (Charles Clary).
When she finds him carousing with another woman, she divorces him. Eventually she finds
happiness with Paul Ramsey (John Bowers), and they wed. Ramsey is sent out West by his boss, Dick
Turner (Robert McKim). Ramsey discovers that Turner lusts after his new wife, so he hires a man to
protect her. The man just happens to be her ex-husband, Bruce, who unbeknownst to either of them,
is seeking revenge. Bruce convinces her to go to Turner's home. An old lover of Turner's is already
there and a dictograph records the conversations. When Ramsey returns home, Bruce plays him the
dictograph and he becomes convinced that Laura was involved with Turner. He rushes to Turner's
and shoots him. Ramsey is put on trial for murder and the only way he will be freed is if Laura
testifies that she was in Turner's room. In spite of the fact that it compromises her, she does so in
order to save her husband. Ramsey is freed and the couple are reunited.
