The Goose Woman is a 1925 silent film drama directed by Clarence Brown and starring Louise Dresser with Jack Pickford as her son. The film was released by Universal Pictures. The Rex Beach short story is based in part on the then already sensational Hall-Mills murder case in which a woman named Jane Gibson is described as a pig woman because of the pigs she raised on her property.[1]

Both critics and audiences favorably received the film.[citation needed] The Goose Woman was remade in 1933 as The Past of Mary Holmes featuring Helen McKellar and Jean Arthur.[2]
