Director Rupert Hughes adapted Gimmie from a short story written by himself and his wife. Helene Chadwick plays working girl Fanny Daniels, who borrows $500 from her boss to pay for her wedding trousseau. When her boss demands repayment, Fanny draws the money from her new husband's account, assuming that under the circumstances, he'll understand. But hubby Clinton Ferris (Gaston Glass) is appalled at Fanny's seeming extravagance. She, in turn, realizes that Clinton intends to treat her like a helpless child, whereupon she returns to her old job. That's when Clinton realizes he can't go on living without Fanny, so he swallows his pride and asks forgiveness. In the 1920s, it was a rare film indeed where the husband went crawling back to the wife, rather than the other way around.
