Cast & Crew
After attending a lecture by Harriet Peebles Cull, Hortense Troutt, a stenographer to wealthy clothes manufacturer Saul Shilpick, Sr., becomes convinced that she is one of the thousands of downtrodden slaves to labor. Saul Shilpick, Jr. is in love with Hortense, but she ignores him. Hortense suddenly quits her job and joins Comrade Harriet's "uplifters." Harriet shares her home with Hortense, who is so infatuated with her new mission that she does not realize she has become an even more downtrodden laborer as a general servant to Harriet. Hortense believes she is in love with Larry Holden, a free-loader reformer who is actually already married and practices free love. Shilpick, Jr. disguises himself as a "convert," rescues Hortense from the uplifters, and wins her love.
The working title of this film was Free. Pre-release trade articles differ from contemporary reviews in calling the actress who played Larry Holden's wife Lois Woods, not Wood.
