A typical Cinderella story, Annie-For-Spite starred the American Company's answer to Mary Pickford, blond Mary Miles Minter, as a poor shop girl adopted by a wealthy widow (Gertrude le Brandt), who hopes to spite her greedy daughter-in-law (Eugenie Forde). Minter, of course, inherits the old woman and Eugenie sues and wins. The former shop girl, however, has the last laugh when the nasty woman's son (George Fisher) proposes marriage. Giving Minter the full Pickford treatment (except the salary, of course), American hired "Little Mary's" favorite director, James Kirkwood, to helm this film.
