The Sin of Madelon Claudet (The Lullaby)
Choosing her men rather poorly, a woman goes to prison for the crimes of one of her loutish lovers then turns hooker, raising a fine son and secretly helping to put him through medical school. Helen Hayes garnered an Oscar for her far-ranging performance in this somewhat contrived tear-filled drama.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Helen Hayes won her first Oscar for playing a self-sacrificing mother in this MGM soap opera, scripted by husband Charles MacArthur, which was part of femme-driven film cycle that included the Oscar-nominated Madame X and Sarah and Son."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"[Hayes] flogs her big moments until they're dead."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
