The Sin of Madelon Claudet

AKA: The Lullaby

Country: USA

Genre: Drama



French country girl Madelon Claudet (a much-praised performance by Helen Hayes) falls for an artist, who leaves her after she becomes pregnant. She finds help from jewel thief Carlo, but he commits suicide when the police try to arrest him. Madelon is arrested and receives a ten year term in prison as his accomplice, even though she is innocent. On her release, she visits her teenage son Lawrence (Frankie Darro), now living at a state boarding school, who knows nothing about his mother and is unaware that his mother has been in prison. Telling Lawrence that she is an old friend of his mother's, and that his mother is dead, she determines to finance her son's education, which she does by turning to prostitution and thievery.


  • The film was voted one of the ten best pictures of the year by a 'Film Daily' nationwide poll.
