Storyline

Mame is not very handsome, but she has an accomplishment that stands her in good stead. She can cry most effectively. She applies for a position in a box factory, and when she learns there is no vacancy for her, she cries so piteously that a place is made for her, in which she is a downright failure. When told she is not competent, she pipes out another cry that lands her in another position in another department. This is the last straw, and all the bosses come to the conclusion that she is useless and tell her that her services are no longer required. This starts her to crying with increased energy, which brings the bosses to a consultation and a decision to turn her over to "Red" Grogan, the toughest and most dominating boss in the place. For a day or two they hear nothing from Mame, who has been dubbed the "Boss Weeper." She disappears, and with her, "Red" Grogan, who leaves a note, saying "Me and Mame was married this morning. I will be back to work in a week." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is a case of more or less laughter all the way through
19 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Miss Florence Turner gives us a bit of old-time Turner comedy. It just happens that she also wrote this skit as well as taking the chief role. There are many in the cast, the chief of whom is Harry Morey, who makes a lot of fun on his own account by his delineation of the "tough" of the factory. It is a case of more or less laughter all the way through the thousand feet. Miss Turner takes the part of Mame, "the boss weeper," and she leaves a trail of tears in every department in which she is successively tried. E.R. Phillips, Charles Eldridge, Robert Gaillord, Charles Edwards and Richard Rosson all do good work. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
