Cast & Crew
Annabelle Leigh witnessed her father's death in a fight over a mine claim, then married John Rawson, a bearded hermit who kidnapped her to protect her, and then was sent away by him because of her crying. Annabelle now lives luxuriously in a fashionable New York hotel on payments sent by Rawson. Greatly in debt, Annabelle sells her father's mining stock to unscrupulous financier George Wimbledon, but still broke and in danger of being named co-respondent in a divorce suit, she persuades Wimbledon's butler to hire her as a cook at his Long Island estate. Rawson, beardless and in town to get the stock to give him control of the mine, falls in love with Annabelle without recognizing her, and rents the mansion surreptitiously from the butler. After Annabelle recovers the stock from Wimbledon while he drunkenly sleeps, she tells Rawson she is going to find her husband and is pleasantly surprised when he reveals his identity.

The copyright records indicate that the title of this film is Good Gracious Annabelle! rather than Good Gracious, Annabelle, as it appears in reviews. Kummer's play was filmed again by Fox in 1931 as Annabelle's Affairs with Victor McLaglen and Jeanette MacDonald starring and Alfred Werker directing.
