The Woman in Room 13 is a lost[1] 1920 silent film mystery drama directed by Frank Lloyd and starring Pauline Frederick.[2] It was produced and distributed by Goldwyn Pictures and is based on a Broadway play of the same name, The Woman in Room 13.[3] The film was remade at Fox in 1932 as a talkie.


As described in a film magazine,[4] Laura Bruce (Frederick) is divorced from her husband following an unpleasant matrimonial term. She then marries Paul Ramsey (Bowers), whom she has always loved. Dick Turner (McKim), his employer and enamored of Laura, sends her husband away on a business trip. A murder is committed and detective John Bruce (Clary) seeks to fasten the crime upon Paul. After he fails to do so, a happy ending results.
