Cast & Crew
After her mother dies, art student Annie Wilkes moves to New York from the country to seek fame and fortune. Penniless, she takes a job in the dressmaking establishment of the avaricious Madame Estelle and enters a contest to design a standardized outfit for American women to wear during the war to help the conservation effort. Her design, called "Heart of Gold," submitted on the shop's letter-head, wins the $5,000 prize and becomes the rage of the city, but Madame Estelle claims credit for it and fires Annie. Annie's sweetheart, impertinent and lively Mike Monahan, hires a lawyer to help, but the lawyer steals her original drawing and becomes Madame Estelle's partner. After Annie goes to jail under an assumed name for attempting to retrieve her drawing, Mike, with the help of the newspapers, proves her case. When he locates Annie, their romance is accompanied by her acclaim as a designer.
The film, which was started during World War I, had the support of the Federal Conservation Bureau.
