Cast & Crew
Doris Wingate is featured in a Sunday magazine supplement as the most snobbish girl in America. In reality, Doris is lovable and eager for friends, and it is her Aunt Priscilla who deliberately cultivates the false impression. Realizing this, her uncle ships Doris off to a co-educational college, but unfortunately, her reputation preceded her and she is snubbed by the other students. However, in Robert Lee Hollister, a fellow student who takes in washing to earn his tuition, and his little helper Dolly Temple, Doris finds true friends. Entering into a business partnership with her new friends, Doris spends her happiest hours sorting linen until her Aunt Priscilla arrives to break up the match. Doris defies her aunt and elopes with Bob, thus shattering her image as a snob, and the two settle down to a happy life together.
In 1919 an injunction restraining the use of the title "Happiness" as the title of any film was issued by a United States Court in response to the application of J. Hartley Manners, the author of the play Happiness, who started his suit after Triangle released this film. The stories of the film and the play were not similar.
